school 026My name is Kate Hayes. I am so excited to be a part of the teaching family here at North Georgia Christian Academy.  I feel it is such a blessing to be able to teach in Christian environment where I can help students reach their full potential while glorifying God at the same time.

I have grown up here in Ellijay and attended NGCA in its first years. I graduated Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelor’s in English from Dalton State College December 2012.  I will be teaching fifth through eighth grade language arts as well as high school writing and literature.

My free time mostly revolves around karate; I am privileged to have received my black belt from Mr. Ben Kiker and teach at his studio here in Ellijay along with my husband, Daniel. Daniel and I met at karate, and it remains a place where we enjoy training together.  We attend church at First Baptist Church of Ellijay and enjoy being a part of a wonderful couples’ Bible study as well.

Thank you for the opportunity to teach your child! I look forward to working with you throughout the year to develop your children into the successful, godly adults they will one day become.
