to 4th Grade!

About Me


I have been married for many years. My husband, Aaron, is a graphic designer and web developer. Together we have two amazing girls, Paige and Quinn. I’m sure you will hear many stories about them and your children will get to know them too!! They will both be coming to throughout the year to help out!


I was born and raised in Alpena and graduated from Alpena High School. After high school, I attended Central Michigan University where I earned two Bachelor of Science degrees, one in Political Science and one in Psychology. I left CMU and returned to school at Wayne State University where I received my teaching certification and Master of Arts Degree in teaching. Before teaching here in Livonia, I spent four years teaching middle school in Detroit. I have been a part of LPS since 1999 teaching Kindergarten, 3rd and 4th grades.




You will receive a variety of newsletters and bits of information throughout the year to keep you informed about what is going on in the class as well as at Hayes. It is important to check your child’s folder each night for notes. Class news will be sent electronically. This will save both time and paper! You can also sign up for e-blast news from Mr. Grezak through the Hayes website and join the Hayes PTA group on Facebook.


You can contact me at any time by sending a note in your child’s daily folder, leaving a message at the office, or e-mailing me. E-mail is the best way to contact me. I check my mail several times a day. If you have an urgent matter, contact Mrs. Cox in the office for assistance. If you need to get a hold of me after school hours, e-mail me. I access my school e-mail at home as well. Do not leave a voice message, I do not get them in my room!
