I grew up and attended grade school in Greenville.  After graduating from high school I attended Barton College for one semester before transferring to ECU.  I graduated from ECU in 2006 with my BS in Birth Through Kindergarten Teacher Education.  I taught for several years before rreturning to ECU for a year long program.  This time I graduated with my Master's in The Art of Teaching for Elementary Education.

Hello Families,

My name is Catherine Haynes.  This is my second year teaching at Hearne Elementary School.  Last year I taught fifth grade.  I also got married last year, so if you hear your child say the name "Ms. Nicholls" that was my name before I got married.  This is my 11 year teaching; my 7 year teaching lower elementary.  I am excited to be back teaching first grade!  We have started this year off good and I look forward to seeing how far we grow.
