Hi! My name is Charles Hadley. I’m very excited to be your teacher this year. I know that we will have a great time exploring and learning here in room 20! Let me tell you about myself. I live in Central Point, but I was born in Texas. I am married to a wonderful lady named Elizabeth and we have a 14 year old daughter named Kaitlyn and a 10 year son named Colton. One of my best friends is my big yellow dog named Barley. He is so funny and I love to play with him. We also have a cat named Maya who keeps the mice away. I started school going to Mae Richardson in Central Point. I then moved into Medford and went to Hedrick Middle School. There I played many sports and had a great time. From there I went to North Medford High School and ran track. You will soon understand that I love sports. You will probably see me and my wife at many local sporting events. My favorites are trail running, football, basketball, and golf. I have coached several sports including running, volleyball and basketball.
I went to college at Southern Oregon University and graduated with a degree in Psychology. After that I went into the workforce did many jobs, including baking cookies at the Cookie Connection and driving tow trucks and selling insurance. After working for several years I discovered my love for teaching and went back to school and earned a masters degree in teaching. I have taught second thru 5th grades. I am happy to have you in our class and look forward to a challenging and fun year together. If you would like to know anything else about me just ask!
