Mrs. Patricia Hayes
Hey everyone, I'm Trish Hayes and I am currently working on my eleventh year of teaching. This will be my eighth year in 3rd grade and I've also taught three years in second grade. I've had the privilege of teaching here at Northwoods Elementary School my whole career. I have had experience as an Odyssey of the Mind coach as well as Multiplication Bee representative for the school. I absolutely love this school, the kids and this community. They have given me a wonderful experience and I have learned so much from them, especially my kids. I received a Bachelor's Degree from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington through the extension program right here at Coastal Carolina Community College, however, I am still learning day in and day out from the amazing staff at this school.
A little more about me...I was born and raised right here in Jacksonville. I graduated from Dixon High School, class of '06. I live with my amazing husband Shaun. We love to travel, my favorite places being Alaska and Belize so far. I love spending time with my family. I love reading in my spare time and with my students. I have many favorites, including Harry Potter, The Chronicles of Narnia series and J.R.R. Tolkien's Lord of the Rings series. I absolutely adore Disney! The joy of Walt and Mickey is something I will never outgrow. All my students know my all-time favorite movie is Beauty and the Beast.
