Dear Parents,

Welcome to Fifth and Sixth Grade Social Studies!  I am so excited to have your child in my class this year and to get the 2020-2021 school year off to a great start!  Please check our class page here regularly for more information.  Check out the homework tab for nightly homework.  If you have any questions or concerns, please email me at madison.haff@dor.org.

I am so grateful to have, what I believe is the best job in the world. I have worked with all age levels and I love coming to work each day. I am excited to work with each student and get to know each one of them better. Scroll down to learn a little bit more about me.

My Education

I attended Niagara University and received my Bachelors Degree in Elementary/Special Education (1-6), with a minor in American Sign Language. I grew up in Greece, NY and attended Elementary and High School there.

Fun Facts:
I cheered and played soccer from ages 5-18. I was a college cheerleader and also participated in Club Field Hockey. I love traveling and going to new places. My favorite season is winter. I also participated in American Sign Language Club and Niagara University Future Teachers Association (NUFTA) during my time at Niagara.

I believe a part of me has always known that I was going to be a teacher. As I went through my academic career I looked back on the values the ideas that had been instilled in me as a student by my school teachers, and once I realized the impact that one person had had on me, everything clicked. I believe in our future and I also believe that children are our future. I became a teacher in hopes of affecting students the way I was affected when I was young. Providing them with more than just knowledge, but a basis and a respect for learning and growth and curiosity that they will carry with them for the rest of their lives. I hope to do so and I can’t wait to work with each and every one of my students this year!
