Beverly Haugen

Giraffe Laugh 2 Site Director

I grew up in Heppner, Oregon and moved to Boise in 1998. I will soon start the adventure of obtaining my BA in Early Childhood Education. My favorite moment is when a child grasps on to a concept that they have been struggling with. Having the privilege to witness the pride they feel in their accomplishment brings me the greatest amount of joy.I was a single mom with next to no education with an amazing passion for working with children. I saw an ad for a preschool teacher with Giraffe Laugh and interviewed for it. I fell in love with the children, the staff and Lori. My passion is providing a safe, healthy learning environment for children and families regardless of their ability to pay. One of my favorite parts of my job is giving tours of our program. I love spreading the word and sharing my love of Giraffe Laugh. To contact Beverly email beverly@giraffelaugh.org or call 208-954-5450
