Degrees and Certifications:

Mr. Zach Hayes

I graduated from North Park University in Chicago with a degree in Elementary Education and Special Education.  I also completed my Masters degree at North Park, earning a ESL certification as well.  I stayed teaching at various schools around the Chicago area for the past 5 years and just moved back to my home state of Minnesota in the Spring of 2020 to be closer to family.  This is my first year at Ramsey and Distance Learning is quite an interesting way to get to know a new school and all the wonderful new students.  I am excited to be teaching here and working with everyone.  I am teaching special education for 6th grade this year with various co-teaching classes and a few small group reading and skills classes as well.  My biggest belief in teaching is that finding any way to get the students to enjoy school is the best way to teach them.  I do my best to get to know every student and understand what they need to do to be successful in school.


When I am not teaching, my favorite thing to do is golf.  I grew up golfing with my dad and brother and have been playing for about 20 years now.  I had many jobs at golf courses that allowed me to golf for free, so I have played a lot.  Having summers off is a perfect combination for an avid golfer.
