About Dr. Hayes

I am so pleased that I get to be the principal at Waterville Community Elementary School! Every day, I get to be a part of a wonderful staff and students that enjoy teaching and learning. I began my love of learning as a student, which propelled me into teaching. I felt such a curiosity as a child from my own educational path that I learned early on to never stop learning.  I want this love for learning for each student at WCES! I thrive on the possibilities for the future for every child, and it is my goal to expose them to and prepare them for all of the possibilities.
