Hello! My name is Theresa Zafft and I am a fourth grade teacher at Hayfield Community Schools. This is my first year teaching in Hayfield, however this will be my 13th year teaching upper elementary. I decided as a third grader myself that I wanted to be an elementary teacher when I grew up and have never wavered from that passion. I am dedicated to doing whatever it takes for each child in my class to be successful and look forward to working with your family to reach our goals.

I grew up in Rochester and graduated from Winona State University with my bachelors in Elementary Education and then continued through Winona State to earn my Masters degree in Elementary Education. Prior to teaching in Hayfield I have taught two years of Gifted Services and ten years as a third grade teacher. I am so excited to join the Hayfield Community Schools and look forward to a wonderful year with your child!

My husband, Drew, and I have two children: Hannah who is in 2nd Grade and Connor who is in Preschool both at Hayfield Community Schools. We also have a German Shorthair Pointer puppy, Zoey, that keeps us on our toes! We moved out to the Oslo area in 2020 and are loving all that the Hayfield community has to offer our family!

I will be posting regular updates, resources, and pictures through our class Seesaw account so please be sure to check Seesaw frequently. Please do not hesitate to call or email with any questions, concerns, or feedback. I am looking forward to a wonderful school year!
