Frolickers: Cole, Natalie, Haley



Mr. Cole was dropped off by unicorn storks in Hickory, NC.  He learned to frolic at an early age and never stopped.  Mr. Cole graduated from Rainbow Dash Wizard School with Magnum Lum Unicorn honors.  He began working with children almost twelve years ago as a coach for youth sports. Cole joined The Little School back in 2007 as a professional frolicker. Together with his students, they have hiked and mapped the surrounding woods, discovering “the magic mountains”, “wonderland”, and countless other delights. Cole can find magic anywhere, and TLS is forever grateful for his humor, energy and joy.  In his spare time, Mr. Cole likes to frolic between hither & yon, i.e. playing basketball, enjoying multiple brunches, running, and paddling down the Eno river with his best dog friend, Dover.

Born and raised in Guilford County, Haley has always been drawn to work with children. She began at age 14 by volunteering and soon working at the Greensboro Children's Museum while babysitting for many friends and family members until she moved to Chapel Hill for college. At UNC, she received bachelor's degrees in Psychology and Anthropology while continuing to babysit. She has since worked as a research assistant in child development giving assessments to children ages 1 through 10. Teaching at The Little School is another exciting step for her into engaging with and learning from children. Haley loves taking road trips off the beaten path, exploring our country's landscapes, running, playing, sewing, knitting, and all other sorts of projects
