Hello, and welcome to my teacher page! My name is Cannon Hay, and I currently teach fourth grade mathematics. This year is my first year at BBES, and I am very excited to meet the great students and families that make up our entire district!

My road to teaching is anything but normal. I am a Berlin Mountaineer through and through. I sat in the same classrooms, had the same teachers, and can proudly say that I am an alumni of this wonderful school district. When I graduated Berlin in 2019, I attended Waynesburg University and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration in the winter of 2021. Upon graduation, I accepted a position working in the Kindergarten through 2nd grade wing of the Berlin Brothersvalley Elementary School through Americorps. It was with this experience that finally realized that working with young students is my passion in my life. With this goal in mind, I worked toward obtaining my K-4 teaching certificate through the University of Point Park's ABCTE program. During this time, I also held a long-term teaching position in 5th grade science/social studies at Berlin during the fall semester. In the spring semester, I completed my student teaching in 1st grade at Berlin before being hired in April of 2023.

My goal in teaching is to make an impact on the students that I teach while applying our standards to the real world around my students. The relationships that educators build with students are what carry on for many years beyond school, and that is something that I strive to do in this profession. I look forward to meeting new faces this year, and I am looking forward to the many goals that we will accomplish during this school year.
