Cummings Elementary

Madden, Mary » Home


My name is Mimi Madden and I teach 2nd grade at Cummings. I am currently in my 37th year of teaching. I have a passion for children's literature and for getting kids to read. It is my favorite thing!
I am married to Kyle for 34 years and we have three sons. Brady (29) who lives in GR and works in Telecommunications, Casey (27) who works in food brokerage and Colin (24) who will be entering the Navy in January 2015. I am extremely proud of my sons and enjoy being around them.
I have many hobbies besides children's literature. I have recently taken some online courses in photography. I enjoy taking all types of pictures, especially with my students when we do fun things in the classroom. I also collect dolls and enjoy taking water challenge classes four times a week at the YMCA.
I am currently on the Kentwood School Board serving as its President. It is challenging but I sincerely enjoy learning the business side of education.
I have 6 sisters and brothers as well as 23 nieces and nephews. I am very close with my family and enjoy being around them.
What a wonderful job I have working with kids every day and I get to spend my day at the best school in Grandville. :)
