MONTICELLO (The News-Gazette) — Meet Linda Hayes, a substitute teacher in the Monticello school district who recently spent several months teaching a high school English class for Lisa Nuku, who was on maternity leave. She's worked as a teacher for 32 years, and spent her last several years as an elementary school teacher in Monticello. Since her retirement two years ago, Hayes has filled in teaching at every grade level in the district. "Since retiring, I most miss my school 'family.' ... Substituting is enjoyable because I want to help and I love a learning environment," she said.
