2nd Grade

Teacher: Mary Helon Hays
Teacher Assistant: Leah Corhern


My name is Mary Helon Hays. This year is my second year at ACS!  I graduated in 2015 with a bachelors degree in Psychology from Mississippi State University and completed my bachelors degree in Elementary Education in December. 2019 For the past four years, I have worked in the West Point Consolidated School district as an assistant teacher of dyslexia therapy and an assistant teacher in a first-grade classroom. I also have experience as a registered behavior technician working with children with autism.


My teaching philosophy centers around the whole child. Building a positive rapport with my students is something very important to me. I want to be able to know them personally. Not just them as students but as people. My goal is to create a positive and nurturing environment, and I want my students to receive the most out of their learning. I am so excited to begin this school year at ACS! 

Teacher: Elizabeth Bohn

My name is Elizabeth Bohn and this is my first year at Annunciation Catholic School. My family and I just moved to Columbus a few months ago and I am honored to be able to teach at such an amazing school. I graduated from Fort Hays State University in 2019 with a degree in Elementary Education. I was a second grade teacher in Colorado and also spent some time homeschooling my own little ones last year. I love teaching and the excitement that comes with learning something new.   

I feel that our classroom is a little family and we will be working together to help our family grow and learn. I will be incorporating various learning techniques that will be fun and interactive for you kiddos. My goal is to create an environment that will encourage the love of learning in my class! I am excited to see how our class grows this year!
