Hi! I'm Ms. Verdon. Welcome to my 6th grade class!

I grew up in Parchment Michigan, graduating in 2003. After graduating high school, I attended Western  Michigan University, majoring in elementary education and minoring in social studies and mathematics.  I graduated in December of 2009 and immediately starting working as a paraprofessional in the Portage Public School District.  After a year and a half there, I decided I wanted to challenge myself.  I moved to Phoenix, Arizona to teach 5th grade.  I was there for 5 years, but eventually decided to move back to Kalamazoo to be with family.  Upon moving back home, I found a job teaching 6th grade in Athens, Michigan.  This is where I discovered my love of middle schoolers! After spending a year at Athens Jr./Sr. High school, I found my home at NEMS!

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with family, especially my nephew! I also enjoy cooking, traveling and spending as much time as I can outdoors.
