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.

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!

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

extremely unprofessional and inappropriate. seems like the only reason he is a high school teacher is to attempt to relive his high school days. picks favourites and tries too hard to be cool with the students. all talk no action and reveals too much personal information to students. seems fun as first, but just wait.
