Hello and Welcome to 6th Grade at Hadley! My name is Abel Orelove and I am pleased to be a member of the Crimson Team and teaching ELA this year. I received my bachelor's degree in Telecommunications from Ball State University and a master's degree in Teaching from National Louis University, with a second master's degree in School Leadership from Roosevelt University. I have 14 years of experience in education, including 12 years in the classroom and two as a school administrator. I have three children and a wonderful wife. I enjoy distance running, basketball, reading, and movies! It is wonderful to work with students and set goals and ultimately achieve growth and success. You can follow our classes on Twitter (@Orelove33c). A weekly newsletter will be sent home with students at the beginning of each week and also posted on the homework website. Students are the cornerstone of everything I do, and I look forward to working with staff and families to provide the best educational and social experience possible for each young scholar.
