Hello Families! My name is Jon Haney. I am very excited for another year at Rocklin Academy Gateway. Go Gators!!! The fourth grade is a remarkable year which truly challenges the students to take more responsibility with their learning process. I am excited to help and guide students to achieve success.
I graduated from CSU Sacramento with a Bachelor’s Degree in Communication Studies. I obtained my multiple subject teaching credential through the Cal State Teach program at CSU Fresno.
I live in Loomis with my wife, son, baby on the way, and our three dogs. I have spent the last ten years studying various forms of martial arts, currently in Brazilian Jiu-jitsu. I passionately believe coffee is the best way to start your day. I also believe it is cool to be smart and that my classroom promotes a fun learning environment that is safe and also guides students to think for themselves. I have a love for learners and fostering that passion for learning is my goal with all of my students. I believe in an open communication style between the families and the teacher. Being a parent myself, I can see the view point coming from both sides of the classroom and am eager to create positive relationships to help generate the best possible classroom success.
