Our very first second grade class will have a veteran Island Prep teacher! We are lucky enough to have our very own Mrs. Hayden, who has been subbing with us for the last year, teaching our Art and Music enrichments and working as a lead teacher in our summer program for the last two years. Growing up outside of Gainesville, with siblings who are hearing impaired brought Alex to Flagler College to study education and ultimately to FSDB where she has worked for the last 4 yrs. with children from all over the state. She made St. Augustine her permanent home with her husband and
two dogs, Lily and Daisy Mae. This gators fan has a big personality and infinite patience, VPK Graduation which is evident in her approach to teaching.
With her background at FSDB she brings with her a fluency in ASL and a knowledge of how children adapt to education even when they face challenges which is a great asset to the fundamentals of our program. We are excited to be seeing more of Mrs. Hayden this year!
