Hello River Dell Families!  I am Mrs. Hays and I teach 5th grade math and science.  This is my first year at RDE but my 8th year teaching.  I earned my teaching certificate from East Carolina University after completing my undergradute degree at Peace College in Raleigh, NC.  I am married to my husband Joe and together we have 2 stepsons, Ryan (14) and Keeghan (12), and we have another son, Jameson who we welcomed into the world February 20, 2019.  My family and I live in the Flowers/Archer Lodge community and I'm grateful for the opportunity to be closer to home and serve in my community!  This year is going to be the best year yet!  Thank you all for your warm welcome!
