Portrait of Principal

Arianne Hayes

Greetings Mustangs!! I am excited to return home to Midlothian Middle School for the 2022-2023 school year!! I am a graduate of West Georgia University, Liberty University and Virginia Commonwealth University’s Post-Master’s leadership and supervision program. As a former elementary and high school special education teacher, dean of students, associate principal, and elementary principal here in Chesterfield County know that I have the knowledge and skills to work collaboratively with our school community in which my family also resides. My family and I enjoy the beach, outdoor activities and art projects at home.  I can assure you that all of our students, staff and administration embody an Infinite Learner Mindset, and will feel safe and supported within our school community.
