Mrs. Tonya Hayes

Kindergarten Teacher


Hi! My name is Tonya Hayes and I am teaching Virtual Kindergarten here at Coats Elementary! I am a Campbell University graduate and am in my third year of teaching. 

I grew up in Plain View, just a little bit up the road where I graduated from Midway High School in Sampson County and married my high school sweetheart! Outside of school, I love spending time with my family and fur baby!

I have a strong passion for teaching and watching students grow their minds and personalities and I am very excited to continue my journey doing that here at Coats Elementary!
