A bit more about me

I have been teaching for 30 years.  I have worked with Avondale High School school band for 11 years as the auxiliary director, and acting band director, Teacher Forum Representative, ODE/GAE Associate Representative,Teacher Support Specialist, and Teacher of the Year 1992, 1997 (Forrest Hills Elementary), and 2009 (R.E. McNair Discovery Learning Academy). I am also an experienced Olympic Stepper (1996), Atlanta, Georgia and Who's Who Amongst American Educators.

Presently, I serve as a Social Studies Trainer, Grade Level Chair, Teacher Support Specialist and Fifth grade teacher of ELA/Social Studies at Chesnut Charter School. Also, now a certified 'Gifted' teacher. I am very excited to welcome my parents and students into an inviting classroom of the many strategies I will use to meet the needs of students.  My motto is "if you're happy, I am and if not, I will find a solution to bring joy and understanding to make successful memories."`

Please feel free to email, or write a note.  I want to fill your bucket by closing, "It is no accident we've met, WE have someone we both know and think the world of to ensure success, and that is your child, my student, OUR world."

With Much Success,

C. L. Radden
