About the Teacher/

Welcome Msg

I have been working with people with disabilities for the bast 18 years.  I am originally from a small town in Alabama and grew up around Smith Lake.  Love the lake, boating, fishing, grilling out and the holidays I get to spend with my family.  I am a huge ALABAMA Football fan!!!!   I live in Hernando, MS with my dog Rex and take care of a family member who has intellectual disabilities, Mr. Tom.  

I am so excited to see all the students and get to know them and their families this year!!!   


Stay Safe out there!

Mr. Hays
