Linsey is a compassionate teacher for 2nd grade students. She goes beyond her teaching responsibilities to see that all of her students get an equal chance at learning and experiencing different aspects of life. She is so loving that she wants to take her students home with her. Students that she has taught in the past still run up to her when they see her around town and give her a big hug and tell her they love and miss her. She has that special quality that makes her an outstanding teacher and is an excellent candidate for this award. Good Luck Linsey.

Linsey has a kind and loving spirit. She makes a positive impact on her students and exhibits leadership qualities. Linsey strives to expand more opportunities in her classroom. The students Linsey has taught will someday say..Mrs. Hayman made an “impact” in my life. That is what Life Changer of the Year is all about. Not only the present, but the future!! That is why Linsey is so deserving of this award. I am so proud of the woman you have become, a true inspiration.....

My whole life Linsey has always been a role model to me. Her loving personality, contagious smile, and strive to make each person/student better than they were the day before is a prime example as to why she has been nominated for this award. Anyone that comes in contact with her is lucky to have her in their lives.

I am Lindsey’s sister-n-law and am so proud of her, but I’m not surprised. She’s pretty amazing!! Every time she post something on Facebook about her classroom I’m amazed at the creativity she uses to teach her students. You can see every child fully engaged in the lesson or activity. There is not a doubt in my mind that Lindsey is changing the lives of her students. She’s the teacher they will never forget and she will be one of the first people her former students will reach out to share their successes in life!

I have known Linsey since birth. As a child she was always a go-getter and dedicated to what she believes in. As a teacher she still has that quality. She always encourages her students to do the best they can do and strive to do more. She is a loving and caring person and she reflects that in the way she treats her students. Linsey is deserving of this award.
