Wyetta Hayden, Principal
My name is Wyetta M. Hayden and I am the proud principal of Valerie Pre K-8 School – a school of Excellence. This is my third year as the principal and I have been with the Dayton Public School District for 18 years. My focus and my dedication are to the students, staff, parents, and partners of Valerie PreK-8.
Education is not just a career choice for me - it is one of my passions and a part of my life. My mother was a teacher, and we have passed that legacy on, as both of my children are also in education. Over the last 25 years, I have taught many different grades in many different places. As the wife of a career military officer, I have taught in schools in Germany, Georgia, New Jersey, Virginia, Oklahoma, and Ohio.
Valerie PreK-8 provides a safe, nurturing, and child-centered environment in which our children can grow academically, socially and emotionally. Our staff believes it is important to provide an exciting, inviting, safe, caring, student-oriented learning environment. Our daily focus is for our students to dream big, work hard and achieve much in their continued pursuit of excellence.
Thank you for entrusting your most precious children in our care. We plan to have an even better year this year. Our expectations are very high and in order for our students to exceed those expectations, it will require a shared responsibility involving the school, the home, and the student. This responsibility involves working as a team to guide each student in reaching their fullest potential.
