I’d like to take a moment to introduce myself. I'm Tersheia Hayes and I have been teaching since 2005. My diverse teaching experience includes Kindergarten, First, Second and Fourth grades. I had the privilege to teach First Grade at Hardy Elementary, but most of my experience has been at the Chattanooga School for the Arts and Sciences.

I received my under-graduate degree from U.T.C. in Childhood Education. Later I returned to pursue my inner desire of lifelong learning and earned my master’s degree in 2008 from Tennessee Technological University in Instructional Leadership. Most recently, I earned my Educational Specialist degree in Instructional Leadership at T.T.U in 2014.

I am so eager to begin working together with the teaching staff at Woodmore Elementary! My main purpose as the Literacy Coach for grades Kindergarten, First, and Second is to support and assist the teachers to reach their goals for student learning. I’ve heard and seen so many great things about your children and look forward to supporting their development academically and socially. Since this marks the beginning of our partnership for the success of your child, I want you to know that I will encourage, support and challenge them to achieve excellence in everything they do. I’m extremely excited to take this journey beside them!

My classroom door is always open! I believe that working together by collaborating to create and maintain a successful partnership is vital to support each child based on their individual needs at home and school.Image result for children reading
