Degrees and Certifications:
Hi, my name is Tracy Hays and I graduated from the University of South Alabama in 1996 in Special Education with a minor in Psychology. After graduating, I taught inclusion classes and resources classes in Jefferson County, K-6th grade for 10 years. For the next 10 years, I stayed home with my young children and began long and short term subbing once they were all in school. This year will be my first full time teaching job since 2006 and I am so excited to be in Alabaster City Schools and especially at Thompson Middle School. I feel like I am in a unique situation where I have the knowledge and trial and error from past years but also the excitement and willingness to try new things of a new teacher. Each student that I have worked with in the last week, solidifies that I made the right choice to return to the career I love. I look forward to partnering with all of my students’ parents, but until then, thank you for the opportunity to work with your child and be part of their journey and growth.
