Ester Haffner is originally from the Philippines. She received a bachelor's degree in Elementary Education from Philippine Normal University in 2003. She has worked with preschool children in State College since 2015 and she also has worked with Peace Corps as a Language/Technical Facilitator for more than a decade prior to moving to State College.
Her work with the Peace Corps provided her with experiences and professional growth and takes pride in all the work she did with the organization but working with kids brought her much joy and deeper appreciation of life. Children are progressive, diverse with their thoughts and actions. It will be her honor to be part of their growing years and to witness their strengths and learnings.
