Hello! My name is Hailey Henderson-Paul, and at school students and parents can call me Hailey. This school year (2021-22) is my first year as the full time High School Counselor, though I have worked at Friday Harbor Middle and High schools for the last three years. Before moving to the island full time in 2018, I spent summers working on the docks at Roche Harbor while I was getting my undergraduate degree from the Univeristy of Washington. Once I finished my Bachelor's in Psychology with a minor in Law, Societies, and Justice, I went on to earn my Master's of Education in Professional School Counseling from the City Univeristy of Seattle.
When not at school, I spend my time gardening, hiking, skiing, learning to speak Italian, scuba diving, and traveling during summer breaks. So far I've been to Nepal, India, Thailand, Indonesia, Italy, France, and Spain. Next up is Chile for some trekking in Patagonia, hopefully during winter break next year!
My favorite thing about being a high school counselor is getting to know the stories of our students here in FH, and seeing them grow into awesome young adults.
