              Welcome to Kindergarten!!  My name is Kelsey Hayward, I am in my fifth year of teaching Kindergarten here at O'Rourke Elementary. I graduated from the University of South Alabama in 2012, with a double major in Early Childhood and Elementary Education. I also have Special Education K-6. I graduated with my Masters Degree from The University of West Alabama in Elementary Education in May 2016.  I absolutely love Kindergarten.  I love to see a child's world change in the short 180 days that I have with them!  I was born and raised in Mobile, and have no plans of going anywhere! 


Mission: In Ms. Hayward’s class we choose to be respectful, helpful, and responsible leaders. We are setting a foundation for children to love to learn for a lifetime.




           I am so excited about this year and spending these short 180 days with you and your child. The last two years my parental support was great, so I am hoping this years will be just as good, if not better!  I hope to have an amazing year with all of my parents and students.  If we work as a team and communicate we will all be sure to succeed.
