My name is Haley Light-Pineda. I am 24 years old and take on many roles. My first, favorite, and most important role is being a mother. I have an amazing daughter who deserves the world. I will do everything I need to do in order for her to have a beautiful and successful life. In order for that to happen, I must take on the role of a student who is majoring in Special Education. I am also a wife to my fantastic and supportive husband. The last role I take on is the role of a Special Education Paraprofessional; I have worked in a severly autistic classroom and recently began working with students in an orthopedically impaired classroom. I believe people are placed on Earth for a certain reason and for me, that reason is to teach those who need the extra help and love.
