About charles.hadley

Meet your teacher 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 10! Let me tell you about myself. I live in Central Point, but was born in Texas. I am married to a wonderful lady named Elizabeth and we have a five year old little girl named Kaitlyn and a 16 month old baby boy named Colton. One of my best friends is my big black dog named Major. He is so funny and I love to play with him. 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 played some football 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 football, basketball, and golf. I have coached many basketball teams including Special Olympics for the past 15 years. 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. 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 sixth, third, fourth, and fifth 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!
