The Dunham School announced that Haley Carville has been appointed as the next director of the McKay Academic Center (MAC). Carville, who joined the school this year as a Middle School MAC teacher will begin her new position this summer following the retirement of current director Barbara Germany.
After a national search for Germany’s replacement and interviews with a number of highly qualified candidates, the school was delighted to discover its top candidate in Carville, already a Dunham faculty member.
Carville has more than nine years experience in differentiated instruction and special education, including three years in administration. From her previous roles as a senior special education coordinator at BASIS Baton Rouge and developmental needs specialist at Grace Life Preschool, Carville is adept at collaborating with teachers, families, and service providers to develop and implement support plans to maximize learning for students with learning differences. In addition, she has spent six and a half years in the classroom, working with students of all ages.
“I believe that God has directed my steps and ordained each position I have held to prepare me to fulfill a servant-leader role as director of the McKay Academic Center,” Carville said. “ I am confident that the One who has called me to be an educator has also equipped me to provide inspiration and support to the families, faculty, and staff of The Dunham School.”
Carville holds a Masters of Arts in Curriculum and Instruction in Special Education from Colorado Christian University, a Bachelor of Science in Speech-Language Pathology from Missouri State University, and certification in Mild/Moderate Special Education (grades 1-12), English-Language Arts (grades 6-12), and Elementary Education (grades K-5.)
