Hello! My name is Karen Hayden and this is my 15th year of teaching here in Andover. I have taught 4th grade, Elementary Computers, and 3rd grade previously. I am super excited to be starting my 9th year at Prairie Creek and my first year back in 4th grade! My favorite part of working at Prairie Creek is the amazing parental support and magnificent students I get to work with each day.
My husband, Tim, is the principal at Andover Central Middle School and my two children are in fifth grade and 3rd grade. I attended McPherson College for my Bachelor's Degree and have a Masters from Emporia State University.
When I have time, I enjoy reading, golfing, gardening, sewing, spending time with my family, and going to the lake.
