In honor of Principals’ Appreciation Month, Newton-Conover City Schools will be spotlighting its incredible Principals from now through the end of October. Today’s feature is on Ms. Leah Hayes Assistant Principal of Newton-Conover Middle School!
Ms. Hayes always said she didn’t choose education, but rather education chose her. Ms. Hayes was chosen because of her love for children. Children who are quiet and shy, and children who are loud and have enough energy to run a marathon. Children who come from the best of circumstances, and children who come to us in need of love first and an education second. Children who are already reading and children who do not yet recognize their names. Children who are deaf, and children who hear. She is an educator. Ms. Hayes has had a variety of classroom experiences ranging from being a self-contained exceptional children’s teacher to a regular classroom teacher, and she is now excited to add assistant principal to that list. She has obtained a Bachelor’s Degree in Deaf Education K-12 and Elementary Education k-6 and will finish her Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership in December.
