  • Principal

    Mrs. Candace Jones 

    My name is Candace Jones, and I am excited to be joining the Audubon family.  I am a native Floridian and have lived on Merritt Island most of my life.  I graduated from Merritt Island High School, UCF, and Walden University.  I have been in education for 28 years serving in various roles from teacher, reading coach, academic specialist, and assistant principal for the past nine years.  I am married to Ron who is a Lieutenant Firefighter, and we have one son named Riley who will be a senior at Merritt Island High School.

    I am looking forward to getting to know the staff, students and community.  I will work hard to earn your trust and I am thrilled I get to work collaboratively with you.  I cannot wait to meet you and get started!


    Assistant Principal

    Mrs. Jaime Slentz

    Mrs. Slentz is beginning her third year as the Assistant Principal at Audubon Elementary. She grew up in Merritt Island and attended Audubon as a student, which makes it all the more special that she now gets to play a role in the success of this community-based school.    

    Mrs. Slentz is entering her 18th year with Brevard County Schools. She previously taught 2nd, 4th, 5th grade and technology to students in grades K-6. Mrs. Slentz served as Audubon’s Instructional Coach during the 2017-2018 school year before being appointed as the Assistant Principal in 2018. She has a Master’s in Curriculum & Instruction and a Master’s in Educational Leadership, both earned from the American College of Education.

    Mrs. Slentz is a true native, born in Rockledge and raised right here on Merritt Island. She is married to Coach Slentz, who teaches at Jefferson Middle School. Together they have four children; ages 6, 8, 12, and 14.

    Since introducing PBIS to Audubon during the 2019-2020 school year, Mrs. Slentz is very proud of the positive impact the program made schoolwide. She will continue to build on the program’s success and help cultivate a culture where all staff, students, parents, and community members work together to create lifelong learners and individuals of character. Mrs. Slentz looks forward to watching all of her Eagle students “SOAR” during the 2020-2021 school year to make it the best yet!
