About Mr. Hayward
Welcome to 4th grade. I am so happy that you are in my classroom. This is my twenty first year teaching at Mann School and my sixteenth non-consecutive year in 4th grade. I have a Bachelors' Degree from National Louis University and a Masters' degree from Saint Xavier University. I definitely enjoy working with technology and helping students develop and expand their writing into full narrative, expository, or opinion based papers.
This summer, I taught Base Camp (Sponsored by the Oak Park Education Foundation).
Outside of school, I am married to my wife Melissa, and have two kids, Emma (4) and Connor (8). Outside I am involved with Cub Scouts and enjoy working on web design. My family and I reside in the northwest Chicago suburb of Wauconda, Illinois.
I'm looking forward to a great year working with each fourth grader and their family.
