Meet Us

Meet Mrs. Madden
I graduated from The University of South Carolina in 1997 with a degree in Elementary Education.  I taught at Brushy Creek Elementary for 6 years, where I was honored to be named Teacher of the Year, Top 10 District Teacher of the Year, and Distinguished Reading Teacher of the Year.  During that time, I earned my Masters Degree in divergent learning from Columbia College.  I also earned National Board Certification in Early Childhood.  I moved to my childhood school, Blythe Academy, where I taught for three years and was honored to be PTA Teacher of the Year.  When the principal there retired, I knew it was time to transfer one more time to get closer to home.  I have been teaching at Bell's Crossing since 2007, where I have been honored to be Distinguished Reading Teacher of the Year for both the school and the district.  All 19 years of my teaching have been in 2nd grade.  It is absolutely the BEST grade ever!

When I'm not teaching, I love to spend time with my husband.  We love to attend concerts and sporting events.  You can find me at Williams-Brice cheering on my Gamecocks if it's a home game!  We have two sweet and energetic boxers named Chloe and Sampson. 

We love, love, love Halloween!  I will use any excuse to throw a great themed party and I LOVE to dress up!  I also have a love for adrenaline sports, not shared by my husband.  I love anything that gets my adrenaline pumping. :) My favorite summer activity is skydiving!  Maybe next summer will be the year I get Mr. Madden to join in the fun!
