Emily Hayes of Fond du Lac has been a full-time instructor for only two years at Moraine Park but has already made a huge impact on the students she teaches. In fact, she recently won the Outstanding New Instructor award from the Wisconsin Association for Career and Technical Education.
“So many of our students at MPTC are struggling to overcome obstacles in order to better their own lives and the lives of those they love and care for,” Emily said. “I really enjoy forming relationships with those students and encouraging their confidence and growth over the course of the semester, or more if I’m lucky and they take more than one class with me! Being a positive part of their stories and successes is definitely the best part of my job.”
