Dede Hunter

Head of School

  • Graduated Magna Cum Laude from Flagler College in 1991 with a B.S. in Mathematics Education, while also completing a full Mathematics major. She received her Master’s degree in Educational Leadership from the American College of Education.
  • In 1991, immediately out of college, Mrs. Hunter began teaching high school mathematics at American Heritage School in Plantation, FL. Shortly thereafter, she married Rick Hunter, a pastor at CityChurch Fort Lauderdale and the founder of Renew South Florida. They have three children — Elisabeth, Ben, and Michael. In 2001, after a brief time in Chicago, the Hunter family returned to South Florida and enrolled their children at Bethany. Mrs. Hunter fell in love with the school and served on the BCS Board of Directors for three years. Upon deciding to return to the classroom, she joined the Bethany faculty as a very gifted Middle School math teacher.
  • In 2011, she joined the faculty at Westminster Academy as a Middle School math teacher. Mrs. Hunter has always expressed a deep desire to eventually come back “home” to Bethany, and — now that this door has opened — she is wholeheartedly committed to succeeding in this new role, leading Bethany into even better and brighter days ahead.
