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 love it!
During my free time, I like to run, kayak and spend time with my family. We have two sweet dogs named Ocho and Emme, who think they are human. They are an important part of our family.
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 sixth 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!
