Teacher Spotlight feat. Mrs.Hayes

Teacher Spotlight feat. Mrs.Hayes

Monica Harter & Wesley Roughton

For this week’s teacher spotlight we interviewed Mrs.Hayes, who has been a teacher here at Diamond for 19 years now. Before Diamond, she previously taught in both Commerce and Wyandotte Oklahoma. She says she enjoys teaching because of the ‘aha’ moments students have when they finally begin to learn something they never understood before. Growing up she never had the desire to be a teacher, but that changed when one of her favorite college professors from Missouri Southern changed her mind. Now she teaches Spanish classes 1-4, world cultures, and a college prep class. Also when bringing up her maraca skills she said “I’m just a pro. It comes naturally.” then went on to say, “ No, I don’t teach lessons, because my skills are top secret.”  To end the interview I asked her what her favorite quote was. She said “Donde comen dos comen tres,” which simply means the more the merrier.
