Michael Layden


Hello All! My name is Mr. Layden. I’m very excited to begin my first year at Hawthorn Academy as a CTE Teacher and share my many years of business management, sales, and hospitality experience. I was born in Nova Scotia and grew up in New York and Georgia before moving to Utah prior to high school. I graduated from the University of Phoenix with Psychology and Business degrees. I am married to my BFF Jaime. We have four kids and four (soon to be five) grandkids. My loves are family, friends, food, and great endings in sports.
