My name is Lisa Pica and I am proud to introduce myself as the Principal of Hayden Meadows. I am a native of Idaho and have been a resident of North Idaho since 1985. Prior to becoming an educator, I was in business administration. I had always wanted to be an educator, so I pursued my undergraduate degree from the University of Idaho and later received my Master’s Degree from Gonzaga University. I have been employed by the Coeur d’Alene School District for the past 18 years. My experience as an educator includes teaching kindergarten, Title I Reading, advanced learning classes, second grade, fifth grade and principal at Dalton Elementary.The staff at Hayden Meadows is dedicated to providing a quality education that is positive, challenging, and rewarding. We value the role parents play in the educational process and realize it is critical to work together to provide the very best educational opportunities we can provide for your child(ren). We look forward to an incredible year!
