Event Description

SCSU alumna Jahana Hayes, '05, a history teacher at John F. Kennedy High School in Waterbury, Conn., was named the 2016 National Teacher of the Year.

A veteran history teacher, Hayes also sees herself as an advisor, counselor, confidant and protector. She endeavors to fill the role her own teachers had in her life, guiding students to be their best selves and encouraging them to take ownership of their communities.

For Hayes, being a teacher is a privilege and an opportunity to transform lives and foster a sense of social responsibility in the next generation. As the 2016 National Teacher of the Year and a spokesperson for the teaching profession, Hayes hopes to motivate more people to become educators and continue to carry out this important work.

Hayes and the other 55 State Teachers of the Year were honored by President Obama at White House event in May.
