Degrees and Certifications:
Hello, and welcome to Mrs. Haden's English class!
I was born and raised in Manassas, Virginia, where I graduated from Prince William County Public Schools. Growing up, it didn't take long for me to realize that my calling was to be a teacher. When I was about 9 years old, I had two younger siblings who needed to know how to read and write. My mom bought me a chalkboard, and eight years later, I attended James Madison University (GO DUKES!) where I earned both my Bachelor's in English and my Master's in Education. I have taught previously at Potomac Falls High School for five years, but I am excited to start a new chapter in my life as a Falcon now at Briar Woods!
Fun Facts About Me:
I am the proud owner of two rabbits, Hatti and Castiel, who are so large that they intimidate most small dogs.
My husband and I are now also the proud owners of a beautiful border collie named Fenway.
My favorite color is purple.
I LOVE Shakespeare and Alice in Wonderland
Edgar Allan Poe is my favorite Amercian author.
I coach colorguard and winterguard at Potomac Falls High School. This will be my 6th year working with their guard program.
I am very excited for the 2020-2021 school year here at Briar Woods High School where I can share my love of English Literature with all of my students.
