Hello, My name is Hayley Rader-Koerner! I am the School Counselor at Flaherty Elementary. I graduated from Spalding University with my Masters in School Guidance Counseling. I am so excited to be a part of Meade County, and to be at Flaherty! My role here is to advocate for EACH child’s needs and to be a support system for our kids.
