Hi there! Thank you for visiting our website. My name is Kelly Hayes, and I am a kindergarten teacher at Fairhope Elementary School. My husband and three girls moved to Fairhope 22 years ago, and we can't imagine living anywhere else.
During my free time, I like to run, read, and spend time with my family. My third daughter will be heading off to college this year so my husband and I will have an empty nest for the first time. Good thing I love our two sweet dogs, Ocho and Emme, like they are children!
I attended school in Fredericksburg, Virginia at the University of Mary Washington, and received my Alabama teaching certificate in 2009. I received my Master's in Curriculum and Instruction with an emphasis in Elementary Reading in 2016. I taught preschool for many years while my children were young. I spent three years teaching fourth grade and this is my seventh year in kindergarten. I love it!
My goal is to make each student feel loved and help them learn to the best of their ability!
