Welcome to Malala Yousafzai Elementary School from Ms. Hayes!
Personal Mission: As an education professional, part of my classroom success is due to the high value placed on personal integrity, as well as ethical and respectful behavior. My students’ safety, well-being, and their positive experience through their educational career with their academic growth are my main priorities. I excel at connecting with diverse individuals. I continually leverage my outstanding interpersonal skills to build empathic relationships with others. I am equipped with the skills to meet the differentiated educational needs of the students in my classroom. I also help them blossom into well-rounded, responsible, and successful individuals.
I have my B.S in Education and a Masters in Education. My passion is for teaching and developing lifelong learners. I have over 20 years of experience educating individuals from infancy to adulthood. I have taught in various settings, some being outside of the public-school system. I also periodically volunteer as a Child Advocate (Court Appointed Special Advocates).
My family is the joy of my life. My husband and I have two daughters and two sons. My oldest daughter is a third-generation educator, my sons’ are starting 8th grade and my daughter is starting 4th grade this year. We also have Ginger Bella, a high attention, requiring toy poodle. Ginger enjoys being held and snuggling up in your lap. My family and I enjoy game nights, camping, amusement parks, traveling, and barbecues.
