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.
