Shanna Hays

I graduated from Vinemont High School in Cullman County, Alabama. I worked in a lab at UAB testing cancer treatments for several years before deciding to go back to school to teach. This is my fifth year teaching science and I love it.
I am married to my best friend, James, and we have two children. My daughter, Trinity, is a junior at NCTHS and my son, Anaken, is in the second grade at Chapman P8. We also have two ferocious pitbulls, Neo and Aurora.
When I am not teaching I like to be outside swimming, hiking, and (my daughter's favorite)...looking for fossils/rocks. I am also fascinated with space and anything involving NASA.
My main goal is to make Chemistry class so awesome that students are encouraged to pursue STEM careers.
