About Me

Hello! My name is Dana Hadden! I graduated from Augusta State University with a Bachelors in Business Administration with an emphasis in Finance. I took a break from working to stay home with my children. When they began school, I volunteered in their classrooms. I knew right then that is where my heart belonged. I went back to school and received my Masters in the Arts of Teaching degree at Georgia Regents University. This will be my 10th year at North Columbia Elementary. I have a true passion for teaching and learning myself. I have received my math, gifted, and ESOL endorsement, and will be working on my reading endorsement this school year.

I am married with two kids and a dog. My son, Tanner, is a sophomore in college this year and my daughter, Tristan, is a senior in high school. My dog is a 5 year Boykin spaniel named Bailey, and she loves to fetch her tennis ball. During my free time, I love spending time with my family especially at the lake.

I cannot wait to meet all of my new students this year! It's going to be an awesome year!
