My name is Ashley Hayde and this is my 8th year teaching kindergarten!! I graduated from the University of Central Missouri (UCM) with a double major in elementary education and early childhood in 2009. Go Mules! I love teaching at KCIA because of the relationships between the students and the staff. My favorite part of the day is greeting my students and seeing their smiles as they walk down the hallway. When I am not teaching, I like to spend time with my family and friends, taking my dog on walks, and snuggling on the couch with my cat. I am looking forward to another fantastic year at KCIA!
