Meet Mrs. Fadden

Hello 1st Grade PNG Clipart Graphic by Totedigitalart · Creative Fabrica
I am very excited to be your teacher this year! I am beginning my 33rd year of teaching for New Prague Area Schools. I taught kindergarten for 11 years and have spend the last 22 years in first grade.  I love teaching first grade because of all the growth. Also, first graders love to learn and are always curious!
I am a graduate of New Prague High School and The College of St. Catherine. I have a master's degree from St. Mary's University in teaching and learning. I have two sons: Thomas a CPA and Michael a third year law student at the University of MN. Thomas and his wife Hayley have two sons. Jack is 4 and Beau will be one in October. They are expecting a baby girl in February.  Thomas and his family live in Plymouth. Michael and his wife Kait live in Edina and are expecting a baby boy the end of January. I am looking forward to doubling the number of grandchildren I have.  
When I'm not doing things related to school, I enjoy being outside and spending time with my grandchildren. I enjoy gardening, biking, and walking. My husband and I have a mini-goldendoodle named Bella and I take her for regular walks!
