Miss Theresa Madden


Welcome to 3A.  I have many years of experience to share with your children and I'm sure I will learn from them as well.  Thank you for entrusting your children to me at Mater Dei. My education includes 12 years of Catholic education as well as my post graduate studies and certificates from Catholic universities. My teaching experience includes being a full-time teacher in every grade except Pre-K, Kindergarten and Grade 5 (although I have subbed in those grades). My experience began in the primary level and went from 1st grade to 8th grade Math (and then 6th to 8th grade math) where I taught for many years. I served as a vice principal for 4 years and a principal for 8 years. I have taught in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia as well as the Diocese of Wilmington, Baltimore and Camden.  This is my 6th year teaching 3rd grade here at Mater Dei.

Don't forget to get a supply of clear contact paper as all of your child's soft-backed books and copybooks must be covered with clear conact.  This protects your child's books better and helps them last in good shape through the school year.  Thanks so much.
