I would like to welcome you and your child to a brand new exciting school year. My name is Kathy Vestal and this will be my twenty-third year of teaching. I was a third grade teacher at Coolidge Elementary for ten years before moving to Hayes. My husband, Bill and I have two children, Kylee who is a junior at Southwestern Christian University, and Kolby is a sophomore at Pioneer High School. I have had a nice long summer with my family and now it is time for another EXCEPTIONAL school year.
