Mrs. Tammy Haynes
I love being a part of Ohatchee Elementary School! I grew up in the community of Saks where I graduated from high school, attended Jacksonville State University and received my Bachelor's of Science in Elementary Education. I started my teaching career at Alexandria for the first five years, continured on at Saks for four more, and have been here at Ohatchee on the creekbank for the last eighteen years. I have taught several grades and subjects through the years. I currently teach 5th grade Science.
I love my Savior, Jesus Christ, spending time with my amazing family, my church, anything outdoors, exercising, Auburn football, the beach, the mountains, big cities, sunsets on my back porch, a good book to read, traveling, going to the movies and curling up for movie night at home.
I have been married to Bruce Haynes for 31 years, and we reside in Ohatchee, Alabama. Bruce is an Ohatchee graduate and works as an insurance agent for ALFA Insurance Company. He loves helping people protect the ones they love and the things that are important to them.
Our life together has been quite a journey that became very adventurous when God blessed us with 5 children (4 of them at one time!). Yes, life became very interesting when the quads were born!
