Sarah Hayes, 29

Job: Principal of KIPP DC: KEY Academy. Education: BA in public policy from Brown University. Hometown: Atlanta. Now lives in Trinidad in Northeast Washington. Hobbies: Fixing up my house, going to the dog park, riding my bike, playing pool, camping, going to baseball games, and fishing. Worst date: Dates involving state troopers, drunk Republicans, BB guns, or all of the above. Deal breakers: Toupees and wives. Hidden talents: Sewing, growing tomatoes, water-skiing, and losing my keys. Shortcomings: I’m stubborn, and I work all the time. What do you hope for? I want to live in the city but have a place either near water or in the woods so my kids can grow up playing in streams and getting dirty. Coolest thing you’ve ever done: Camping on the rim of an active volcano on the Aeolian Islands in southern Italy. Favorite date spot: Harris Crab House in Kent Narrows or eating soft-shell crab sandwiches on the Southwest waterfront.
