At the Springfield Urban League, we are dedicated to finding passionate individuals who have the gift of teaching. We take immense pride in celebrating a remarkable teacher within our Head Start/Early Head Start staff – Haley Benning. Since joining the Springfield Urban League in 2021, Haley's journey has been nothing short of inspirational.

Haley's journey with the Springfield Urban League began two years ago, and in this relatively short span, she has achieved remarkable milestones. One of the most noteworthy among these is securing two coveted Child Development Associate (CDA) credentials, specializing in preschool, infants, and toddlers. This achievement demonstrates her commitment to nurturing and educating the youngest minds, setting a high standard for her peers.

Haley's dedication to her craft doesn't stop at her CDA credentials. Currently, she is pursuing her Associate's Degree in early childhood education through the University of Arizona Global Campus (UAGC) Full Tuition Program. Her relentless pursuit of knowledge reflects not only her personal growth but also her unwavering commitment to the field of early childhood education.
