Hello parents and students! I can't believe that this will be my fourth (and final) year at Clyde C. Hadden as the 5th grade Language Arts and Social Studies teacher! Before I came to Hadden, I taught 4th grade Language Arts at Madison Avenue for three years and prior to that, I spent seven years subbing exclusively in this district.
I have a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Interior Design from Kent State University and a teaching license with a 4/5 endorsement from Notre Dame College. I have been married for 27 years. My husband and I are both proud graduates of Riverside High School. Go Beavers!! I have 3 daughters who are also Riverside alumni. My oldest daughter lives in Austin,Texas where she is pursuing her master's degree in Occupational Therapy. My middle daughter lives in Lakewood and works in sales for Destination Cleveland, and my youngest daughter will be starting her junior year at Kent State in the fashion program. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, repurposing furniture, boating, and watching HGTV.
I am looking forward to working with you this year. If you ever have any questions or concerns, please contact me any time! I am here to support your child's educational/emotional needs and feel that working in a partnership is the best way to achieve that goal.
Please check my online classroom throughout the year for daily homework assignments and upcoming events by using the links on the left.
Let's make this last year at Hadden the best ever!
Here's to a great 2018-2019 school year!
