OVER IN THE MEADOW
Miss Madeleine was welcomed into the Hickory Hill Academy family in the fall of 2021 after graduating the spring prior from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. She received her Bachelors of Science in Early Childhood Education with an approval in Special Education and high honors. Her and her three siblings are/will be first generation college graduates.
Miss Madeleine was born in New Orleans, Louisiana, and moved to the northwestern suburbs of Chicago, Illinois soon after. Her southern roots, however, stayed with her through her love of music and food. When she is not singing or whipping something delicious up in the kitchen, she enjoys spending her time outside in the sun, going to live comedy shows with her loved ones, drinking a vanilla chai latte while reading a book, or playing with her adopted feline friend, Charley.
While most of Miss Madeleine's family remains in Illinois, she wanted to begin her teaching career in Madison, Wisconsin, a growing city that could continue her learning and love for education and new life experiences that wasn't too far from home.
