Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Courtney Bedzyk, and I have the pleasure of being your child’s science educator for the 2021-2022 school year!
In order to get better acquainted with you, allow me to tell you a little about myself and my background. I am originally from Willowick, Ohio and received my B.A. in Theatre from Ohio University in 2001. After a few years of work, I decided to return to Ohio University in order to obtain my Master’s degree in Middle Childhood education with concentrations in both science and mathematics. I have taught science at the sixth grade level in Athens, Ohio and math at a ninth grade level in Euclid, Ohio. After teaching 8th grade science for 12 years at HMS, I am now in my fourth year as a 6th grade teacher on the Respect team!
My husband and I now live in Hudson with our 9 year old daughter, Aislynne and our 6 year old son, Kyler. We are thrilled to be living in such a wonderful and close community. We enjoy travelling, playing board games, watching movies, playing with our three cats and playing outside together.
I am excited about and am looking forward to this upcoming year. I truly believe this is going to be an outstanding year for both the students and myself. It is my hope to work in collaboration with my colleagues, the students, and you, in order to maximize the students’ learning throughout this school year. Although my focus is on achieving a high level of academic success for all students, I want to emphasize my dedication to addressing students’ social and emotional needs as well. I am passionate about my students' learning and strive for a nurturing, safe and warm environment in which all students can reach their potential. My goal is for the students' to come away from my class having a lifelong appreciation for science and the ability to think critically, problem solve, and collaborate with their peers effectively.
I am truly very excited about getting to know your child and furthering his/her understanding of science! If you have any questions at any time, please feel free to call Hudson Middle School and leave a message for me at 330-653-1316 ext. 2266 and/or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will be happy to answer any questions or concerns you may have.
