Marcy Hadean is so well-loved by Altara Elementary’s community she receives annual nominations in favor of her being chosen as the school’s Teacher of the Year. Her time has finally come. Colleagues say Hadean is an amazing teacher in so many ways, and the evidence is in the fact that her classes receive some of the highest benchmark and SAGE scores in the school. She uses her passion for teaching to turn negative behaviors into positive experiences, even as she collaborates with her colleagues and creates a safe environment in her classroom. The Altara community is pleased to present Hadean as the school’s 2018 Teacher of the Year.
