Haley Duncan started teaching in 2011 and joined Maine Connections Academy in 2022. She is a multi-tiered system of supports (MTSS) coordinator, helping make sure the varied needs of students at every grade level are met.

My Background as an Educator

I worked in educational technology for one year, then took a fourth-grade position in Augusta, where I taught for three years. After that, I taught fourth grade in Cumberland for seven years.

The teachers here are incredible to work with and care about their students. Everyone at this school wants what’s best for the students. I love that I get to know students at all grade levels.

The Online School Experience at Maine Connections Academy

Since we’re virtual, I can communicate with many students and caretakers one-on-one every day. 

Online school is comforting for many students, and the flexibility supports students’ needs. Students here have more flexibility than at a brick-and-mortar school, and will receive an amazing education.

Even though we’re virtual, there are many ways students can engage with one another. There are numerous interactions through on-camera LiveLesson® sessions, phone calls, academic summits, field trips, clubs, etc. It’s also neat that students and staff live in all parts of Maine!

My Interests

I live in southern Maine with my two young daughters, husband, and two cats. When I’m not chasing around a tiny human, I enjoy reading, exercising, going to the beach, and visiting with friends and family.

“Students here learn independence and time-management skills that are applicable and important in the world.”
