Mrs. Kylie Hadden

I am a sixth grade Language Arts teacher at Traughber Junior High School. I graduated from North Central College with a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education with endorsements in Middle School Reading and Language Arts. I then attended Aurora University to pursue my Master's Degree where I became a certified Reading Specialist. During the 2013-14 school year, I served as a long-term substitute on two seperate occasions at Thompson Junior High School. I then started as a 6th grade Language Arts teacher here at Traughber for the 2014-2015 school year and have been here ever since.

I love being a teacher, and I am very dedicated to educating students. It is my goal to help students succeed in and outside of my classroom. As I am sure you can tell, I truly love reading and helping my students grow to love it, too! Along with reading, I also love the outdoors, craftin, and (of course) my dogs. My husband and I have two pups at home; Max and Charlene. My students will hear a lot about them over the course of our year together as I am a self-proclaimed "crazy dog mom".
