Getting to Know the Principal
Principal's Page
Mr. Shawn Marsh
    Hello! I am Shawn Marsh, principal at Hayden Elementary School. I grew up in Blount County and graduated from Cleveland High School in 1992. I currently live in Nectar with my wife and children. My wife, Tracy, is a third grade teacher at East Elementary in Cullman. I have two boys and one little girl. My son, Drew, is ten years old, and Myles is four. Emma Kate, our newest addition to the family, is ten months old. Our family enjoys spending time together doing things like hiking and kayaking. 

    I have extensive experience with elementary students both as a teacher and an administrator. My educational career began in Springville, Alabama, where I taught second and third grade, as well as, multiage classes, before becoming an assistant principal within the same K-4 school. I then moved to Auburn, Alabama to work on AA certification at Auburn University and served as an elementary assistant principal with Auburn City Schools for two years. I have four years of administrative experience as an elementary principal in Georgia and have worked as an elementary teacher in Blount County for three years. Most recently, I have worked as an elementary assistant principal in Blount County. I currently hold a B.S. in Elementary Education as well as a M.S. in Educational Administration (K-12) and AA certification in Educational Leadership.

    I am very excited to be at Hayden Elementary. Please let me know if there is anything that I can do to help make your child’s school experience wonderful.
