Teacher of the Year



Amanda Hayes is Hopkins' Teacher Of The Year for the 2016-2017 school year! 




It is an honor to be the 2016-2017 Hopkins Teacher of the Year!  This is my seventh year teaching Early Childhood Special Education in Chesterfield and my fifth year at Hopkins.  I have loved being part of the Hopkins community and I am passionate about partnering together with families to make learning fun and meaningful for all children.  I attended Virginia Tech and Virginia Commonwealth University.  Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with my husband and sons (Noah - 2 years old, baby boy #2 - expected in January).  I love cooking, sewing, bluegrass music, and playing/singing in my church's worship band.

We are honored to have such a wonderful and tireless educator helping our students each and every day here at Hopkins Road Elementary!
