Hello My Name Is...

Mrs. Hedge

Hi! My name is Kathleen Hedge. I currently teach 4th and 5th grade, After graduating from Salve Regina College in 1983, I began my teaching career at the Springfield Science Museum. For 17 years I taught Science classes to children ages 3 - 15, coordinated tours and programs, and ran the overnight camp-in program. I also taught 4th grade at Russell Elementary School, and was a stay-at-home mom for 13 years. 

I was very fortunate to have my three young children attending Abner Gibbs when a 4th grade position opened up 13 years ago. My children moved on, but I have been here ever since! 


It is important to me that your child likes to come to school each day. One way to make this happen is to form a collaboration between home and school as soon as possible. As parents, we know our children better than anyone else! By forming an effective partnership between you - the parent, and me - the classroom teacher, your child's education can be a successful and positive experience! 


Please don't ever hesitate to contact me by phone here at school: 572-6418, or via email.


Students are working on their math skills on-line at 
STMath. This website allows students to practice important math skills and concepts in a format that is fun and engaging. Students can access STMath from any computer that has internet access. 

I also have a webpage on www.shutterfly.com where I post everything from homework to field trips to pictures of my students.  If you wish to be invited, please send me an email at k.hedge@schoolsofwestfield.org

I'm looking forward to a great year!

Mrs. Hedge :)
