Molly Haines

I am a native Arlingtonian and am very excited to be back at Hoffman-Boston this year! I attended Claremont and Drew for elementary school, Kenmore for middle school, and graduated from HB Woodlawn. I hold a bachelors degree in Music Education and a masters degree in Teaching from Westminster Choir College of Rider University, as well as a masters degree in Administration and Supervision. I also hold a Music Together certification for pre-K music. I believe that music is an essential part of the elementary educational experience. I work hard to integrate the core curriculum of language arts, math, science, social studies, and technology into my classroom. Over the course of the year, the students will sing, play, dance, and create music together. Please check out the music activities tab to see what your kids are doing in music, and look for notifications of upcoming concerts in your child’s backpack! You can also find some updates about the music program my following my Twitter feed- @MusicHFB. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns at Mrs. Haines . I look forward to a great year of music!!
