Mrs. Gunnels

About Me

I am Mrs. Haley Gunnels, and I am the inclusion teacher for 6th grade red team! This is my 4th year teaching inclusion, but my 5th year teaching. I have a Bachelor's degree in Early Childhood/Elementary Education and a Master's Degree in Collaborative Teaching K-12. I am also the 7th grade volleyball coach. We would love your support at our games!

I grew up and still live in Chelsea. I am married to Taylor, who is a Lieutenant at Cahaba Valley Fire Department and Chelsea Fire Department. We have been married a little over 6 years! We do not have any children of our own, but we have a niece, Charlie, and a nephew, Cain.

I love sports! I grew up playing baseball (yes, with the boys) until I was in 6th grade. During my 8th grade year, my high school started a softball program and I played until I graduated. I also played basketball and volleyball in high school. My older brother, Joe, is a college football coach. He was at Clemson from 2013-2015, Southern Methodist University from 2015-2017, and now he is the Offensive Coordinator and Quarterback Coach at the University of Arkansas. Woo Pig Sooie!

Outside of school, you will find me doing arts and crafts, or maybe even fishing! :)
