Meet the Teacher


Hello! My name is Mrs. Hays and I am thrilled that you will be in my kindergarten class here at Clay Elementary! I am so excited to meet and learn all about you when school begins, but first I will let you know a little about me.


I was born and grew up in Fultondale, Alabama. I have one younger brother, Randy, and one younger sister, Christie. I love them very much! I graduated from Fultondale High School and went to Jefferson State Community College then moved to Auburn and attended Auburn University…WAR EAGLE! I majored in Elementary Education and received my Bachelor of Science degree.


After graduation, I could not wait to begin teaching. I began teaching in 2007 at Clay Elementary. I taught 1 year in second grade then moved down to kindergarten! This will be my 9th year teaching kindergarten. I love kindergarten because I love watching students blossom into readers and mathematicians right before my eyes!


I am married to Brandon Hays! Together we have a 5 year old son, Urban! Yes…. Urban as in Urban Meyer (husband is a huge fan). He is very loving, active, and funny! He will be starting kindergarten this year just like you! We also have a Malti-Poo named Panda who will be 7 in October. He is a great dog!


I am very excited to be able to be your teacher! I know we will have an awesome kindergarten year together! I cannot wait until I get to meet you! Hope you have a wonderful finish to your summer!
