Mrs. Gidley

I am so happy to be moving back to teach First Grade at Grant Elementary again this year!  

All about me:

I am married to my husband Jeff and we've been married almost 32 years.  I have 3 children, Michael age 31, Rebecca age 29, and Carissa age 20. My husband and I live in Livonia and our son Michael is married and lives in Livonia as well. Rebecca lives in Northville, and Carissa is a Junior in the nursing program at Wayne State and living at home this year. We also have a mini-golden doodle named Ozzy.

I stayed home with my children for a number of years before going back to school several years ago to get my teaching degree. Because I have been both a stay-at-home mom and now a working parent, I can understand both when it comes to busy schedules and activities at home.  I try to create a healthy balance between schoolwork, homework, and life outside of school for my students.

Outside of teaching, I enjoy reading, studying French, and spending time with my family.
