Mrs. Speidell


Hi!  My name is Mrs. Speidell!  I have known I wanted to be a teacher since I was in First Grade!  I always enjoyed helping other kids in my classes as well as endless afternoons of teaching my stuffed animals at home!  I made my teaching dream a reality in 2006 when I graduated from Marist College with a degree in Psychology and Special Education.  I am NYS certified to teach both General Education as well as Special Education.  I obtained my Master's Degree in Literacy from Suny New Paltz a few years later.  This is my sixteenth year teaching here at Gayhead.  I live in Lagrangeville with my husband, James and my two sons, James and Carson.  James is 11 years old and he is going to be in sixth grade this year.  Carson is seven years old and he will be in second grade this year.  We have two dogs, an Olde English Bulldogge named Lola and a rescued mixed breed named Pepper.  When I am not teaching, I love spending time with my family.     I look forward to a great year together!
