Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Keri Haynes and I am the high school English teacher at Blue Eagle Academy. I teach English 1 through 4, and electives such as Creative Writing and Language, Literature and Film. I am originally from Connecticut, but moved to North Carolina with my husband and our slew of pets in 2009. In the meantime, we have grown our family with two children and several new pets! I am going in to my 9th year at BEA, and anyone who knows me knows there is no place I'd rather be!
I started teaching straight out of college in 2000. I began in Dorchester, MA at Boston Latin Academy. After moving back home closer to my family, I taught in Connecticut for 3 years. I was in Florida for 1 year and I have since spent my last 9 years teaching in Clover bringing my grand total of years in education to 17 years! I have taught grades 6-12 in rural, suburban and urban settings and have encountered a diverse population of students over the years. And to my credit, I can probably name most of my students from every year I have taught! They have all had an impact on me in some way as I hope I have for them as well.
I completed my undergraduate studies at Boston University in 2000. I just recently earned my Master's Degree in Teaching from University of South Carolina.
