• Mrs. Hayes- Music 

    Mrs. Hayes Mr. and Mrs. Hayes on the Appalachian Trail  


    Hi, my name is Cara Hayes! I teach music to 3rd-5th graders Bessie Weller, Kindergarten-5th graders at McSwain Elementary, and preschool students at Dixon Education Center. 

    In the music room, students experience the wonder of sound through singing, playing instruments, and moving.  They learn to work together and inspire others through their creative learning and performing. Music influences all people of all cultures, so this class teaches not only the technical side of music, but also about humanity.
