Hello, my name is Hayley DeJong. Formerly known as Miss Kelly. I have taught at Midway Elementary for eight years. It is my fifth year teaching Dual Immersion. I love it! I am the English teacher. I will be focusing on Language Arts and supporting math. My partner teacher is Sarai Soli. She is wonderful.
I graduated from Wasatch High School and from there I went to Utah State University. After several years of teaching, I decided to return to school and receive a Masters Degree. I graduated from Southern Utah University with a Masters in Education.
I grew up in Midway. I went to Midway Elementary when I was young. I am currently teaching in the very same classroom that I was in when i was in 5th grade.
I married my husband, Rowdy, on May 31, 2016. We live here in Midway. We like to spend time with family and friends. We also enjoy being outdoors fishing and hunting. We recently planted a garden, so I guess we are gardeners too.
A few of my favorite things- First of all.... Diet Coke! I love it. Expecially on ice. I also like Hersey Kisses or any kind of milk chocolate. I love markers or pens and a new notebook. I also enjoy a good pair of socks.Most importantly, I love kids. I especially love being involved in their everyday lives. Watching them learn and grow is rewarding. Everyday is a new experience. So, thank you, thank you, thank you, for sharing these little ones with me.
