Welcome to Hayfield Physical and Health Education!

Welcome, I’m Mr. Hayes!  I am a professional and educator in the Physical Education department at Hayfield High School.  I am currently in my third year teaching  and absolutely continue to love my profession.  This is the second district I have worked for, my first two years being spent at Delano Middle School west of the Twin Cities.  I have had multiple field placements to go along with my experiences thus far, which were in the following districts: Wayzata, Monticello, Elk River, and Big Lake (to name a few). These settings have provided me with a great opportunity to work with a diverse and exceptional group of students. However, the more I get to know and work in this district, I’m finding the same rewarding qualities in these students.

The journey to my current position has been long and full of challenges and hard work, but it has been worth it.  I received my initial B. A. degree in history from St. Olaf College in 2007 with the intention of becoming a teacher.  I always had the desire and passion to be a teacher, but being a former athlete and working for a health club and community education for several years, I felt a calling to pursue the field I’m currently in.  I went back to school at St. Cloud State University and received my B.S. in Health and Physical Education with a minor in DAPE (Developmentally Adapted Physical Education), as well as certifications in WSI (Water Safety Instruction) and CPR/AED/First Aid in 2014.
