About Miss Abney
Haylee Abney is thrilled to begin her first year teaching at BFHS! Ms. Abney enjoyed an upbringing attending Benjamin Franklin Charter Schools in Mesa and Queen Creek all the way through her 8th grade year. A firm believer in Ben Franklin’s educational principles, core values, and family-like community, she feels right at home.
Ms. Abney holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Choral Music Education from Northern Arizona University. There, she was president of the NAU student chapter of the American Choral Directors Association and co-founder of NAU Jacks on Broadway. She sang with many different vocal ensembles including the renowned Shrine of the Ages choir. She was also the recipient of the Arizona Music Educators Association’s “Outstanding Future Choral Educator” award in 2016.
Ms. Abney is passionate about vocal music, theatre, and the performing arts in general. She is excited to share that passion with her students. In her free time, she enjoys being involved in local community theatres, spending time with friends, traveling, and doting on her cat, Penny.
Ms. Abney will be teaching Choir and Theater.
