Haley Pollack, M.A., Ph.D.
Principal of College and Career Pathways
Haley Pollack has been an educator for the past twelve years, working in a variety of capacities to help students meet the goals they have set out for themselves and gain confidence in their own innate abilities. After receiving her Ph.D. from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, she taught History and Gender Studies to a wide range of students at San Francisco State University, Diablo Valley College, and Santa Clara University. She has also taught English and Research Skills with the Prison University Project at San Quentin State Prison. More recently, Haley has moved out of the classroom to help students overcome structural inequities in the education system and beyond. As an advisor at College Track, she worked with low-income and first-generation college students, helping them to achieve their goals of a college degree. At Five Keys, Haley is excited to be expanding college access to students in the community and in-custody. When not at work, Haley enjoys knitting, walking her dog, and spending time with her family.
