If you have taken one of his classes, you either love him hate him. He might be a "good" teacher according to RateMyTeachers standard, but I would not recommend him if you are planning to learn something. He often comments on issues he only has a little knowledge of and biased. You can easily get a good grade from his class, and he is indeed a good football coach, but he is not a person I would look up to.
Mr Hayes was one of my favourite teachers in the building . made a lot of differences in alot of people's lives and I respect him for thst . thank you coach Hayes
Genuinely cares about his students. His passion may be misinterpreted, but all who truly know his intentions understand that to get the most out of your students, you sometimes have to say things they might not like. He is an amazing teacher, and definitely not a push over. He calls things as he sees them, and that is a valuable trait to have as a teacher. I'm 25 and he is one of the few teachers I still think about. In an otherwise challenging high school experience, Mr. Hayes was a great help.
He's very outspoken, so you might love him, or barely tolerate him. He thinks he knows much more than other people in my opinion. Good potlucks though!
Hayes is one of the best teachers I've ever had. He is very smart but also very relaxed and funny. He made me feel very comfortable to talk to him and is just all around a great teacher.
Love mr Hayes , stood up for me and is very kind hearted , very compassionate !!
surprisingly he actually knows what's he's talking about in history, I really liked Hayes, I understand why people don't like him. he's so invested in the school, it's amazing . I think Lucas would be different without him, there would never be this much spirit from anyone else. Lucas is his family
Hayes teaches one of the most interesting courses in the school. The only people who don't like his course are people who are just there to criticize. Cares about the school and his students more then anyone else
mr hayes is an awesome teacher that cares more about his school then any other teacher in lucsa hands down
he uses the words 'admin' and 'the big guys upstairs' too much when trying to plan events. all talk, no action
Fun guy and makes his lessons fun. He gives you the information but its your choice if you will learn it.
Great teacher, a bit too slack, but still a smart guy. Likes all his students, and will tell you clearly what you're doing wrong to help you get better grades.
he is a great teacher really nice, treats the students like adults and makes the class so people actually want ot listen and participate. Hos lectures are a must hear!
everyone who is saying hayes is a bad teacher need to shut up because hes amazing. he treats us like adults and gets us ready for the real world. and he can teach. ive learned more from his lectures than any overhead could.
hayes is the man ... the best comment ever made was about izinga at football. he is a friend and a great teacher, he and Mr black but blacky is gone .. best was hitting birdies at peebles haha ... hayes is key
hayes is the man ... the best comment ever made was about izinga at football. he is a friend and the best teacher, he and Mr black but blacky is gone .. hays is key
FUNNY, nice, explains history well. I understand all the work and he makes it all fun. The only problem is he favours kids that r on his darn football team or just the *cool* kids in the class and he can get a lil too angry!!
he is the kindest guy i know he is also the best couch ever. i love u hayes
He is the coolest teacher and best football couch i ever had. love ya hayes
I had a serious issue to deal with in guidance that took close to an hour. When I got back to class, he accused me of signing the slip myself. I ALWAYS attended his bullcrap class, but how would he know? He was never there.
The geeks are the ones who don't like him. He doesn't make you do much work, he leaves the classroom allowing you to go visit your friends or wander and he is really funny! how could you not like him?! grow up?! YOU GROW UP
Really really funny guy but still knows his stuff. If you have him dont expect to do a ton of work but work hard on the projects he gives you.
nice guy. if your relaxed, do the small amounts of work he gives and listen during class, you'll get a good mark. In the end you'll realize you learned more than just history.
Really understands the student body, and is a fair teacher.
nice guy, can teach, knows his stuff, funny, n understanding. wut more can u want from a teacher?
teaching is allowed to be fun. he lets u watch movies because the things you need to learn are in it. he understands the student body. there is no better teacher then michael hayes
He's a nice guy, but can't teach, and doesn't even bother sometimes. You'll watch a LOT of movies with Hayes.
Teaching wise, definitely not the best, but no one can beat his personality. I think I learned more in what he didn't teach then in my other classes. You rock Hayes!
Not the most professional teacher on earth, but definitely on of the most interesting. I'd take his classes over again
Hayes is a good guy, and deep down he really does understand his stuff. If you're relaxed and listen hard, you'll do really well.
not the best teacher, but he knows his stuff, and hes funny
I agree, he may not be the best teacher of all time... But who can beat his amazing personality? Thanks Mr. Hayes, you rock.
cool guy.doesn't stay in class much and went to wendys during class one day.easy course tho and actaully knows what hes talkin about when he actaully teaches.lots of movies!Awesome
I could summarize his class in 3 words: Textbook, Article, Movie. He doesn't even lecture. He's really funny though.
How could anyone dislike this guy. One of the best teachers I had at Lucas. I remember everything I learned, because of his style. Refreshing!!
This teacher is so terrible. He wont teach us anything and seems to run off somewhere after like the first 5 mins of class. Hate him so much.
Last time I checked, teachers were not supposed to encourage their students to gamble. They are also not supposed to show a movie set in the FUTURE in HISTORY CLASS! Bad teacher.
Blah Blah Hayes doesn't teach enough blah, when the man talks it's an inspiration speech everytime, I learn a life lesson everyday, just an amazing guy..
He is a great teacher, but he keeps leaving class to argue with Woodruff about if his pants are blue or black.
He teaches pretty good, except he should really spend more time teaching.
MR Hayes is my fav teacher. He's always clear on what he wants you to do, doesn't expect you to do much work which suits me and is a super cool fun guy. Rock on
makes connections between offensive line and cave man behaviour. Totally neat stuff.
Makes class fun with movies and linking "The Rock" to roman arcitechture!
Never in class, and we watched too many movies...teach something. He is useless
It's just the first day and already i hate this teacher! all he did all class was make fun of people and act like a jerk. i've heard terrible things about him.
Great guy, makes school fun, easy to learn from, gets your redy for university, from the m.c principals kid
He is a halarious person, very smart, but he dosent stay in the class long enough to learn anything from him, makes fun of students frequently
He may be funny, but he does not teach you what you need to know, he thinks he has all power, but he has no pride in his job. He makes fun of his students
Is very funny but goofs around to much, does no teaching in class, takes forever to hand things back and favours certain students while picking on others.
Really funny, makes me laugh so hard. Not the best teacher though.
Awesome teacher! Works hard to teach useful lessons, not only about our subject but on life!
Hayes thinks he's tough. He's really not; I could take him. He's a rude but good teacher.
He's okay for a country boy. I feel safe knowing the halls are safe - he's always in them, wandering.
poor teacher... does not respect the students, makes rude jokes
Thanks for making history actually interesting! Making fun of tom sure helps out!:)
really Funny and cool...the best thing about him is that he would do anything to win...
Hilarious, Great teacher. test marking an be hard though. Good guy
he's an awsome teacher, for those students who can't take his jokes lighten up
Hayes....thanks for that t/f fill in the blanks test-were you TRYING to fail us
He's a funny guy. Never had him for a teacher but he still makes me laugh.
One of my best teachers! A great guy... Really likes his job!
Has some great stories! Over competitive, but overall great teacher!
Always looks mad, good teacher if he doesnt pick on you :p
had him for a sub...seems to not care what others ask :P
