Maddy Hyde works in a public school in Battery Park City. She has been working there for 10 years. Currently she works as a Reading Interventionist and Reading Recovery teacher with the students who perform the lowest. She’s well known amongst the custodial staff and after school as she often works until 6, 7, or even 8PM. She refers to all of her students as her kids (including those who are now in 9th grade) and treats them as such. She’s committed to keeping reading intervention from the chopping block each year as she was once a student who struggled severely with reading and learning disabilities. Her warm and loving nature often has students clamoring to be in her reading intervention class. The money would help keep her programs from the chopping block and give her some much needed vacation time with her husband. Vote for Maddy!
