My name is Molly Hayes and this is my fourth year as part of the wonderful Ryan community and second year teaching fourth grade. I was born and raised in Boulder, Colorado, but I have recently moved to downtown Denver. I attended the University of Colorado where I majored in psychology and elementary education and played my favorite sport, volleyball. I am currently pursuing a Master’s degree in Educational Equity and Cultural Diversity, also from the University of Colorado (Go Buffs!).
When I am not in the classroom working with students, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. Hiking, art, yoga, and traveling are four of my favorite hobbies, but teaching is my passion and has been for as long as I can remember. I truly feel as though I have my dream job, and I look forward to another amazing year!
