Ms. Heather McFadyen

Welcome to 3rd grade at Odell Elementary!  This is my 15th year teaching and my 4th year at Odell.  I have always enjoyed teaching and I wouldn't change it for the world. I have been in the Charlotte area now for 5 years. One of my younger sisters moved to Huntersville with her husband, so once she had my nephew, I knew I had to move to be closer to them. My youngest sister lives in MN and she's in the picture with me. I am originally from Iowa but I lived and taught in Arizona for 9 years, and now North Carolina for 5 years. I love the Charlotte area so far and Odell!

Teaching is my passion!  Not only will your children learn reading skills to help build fluency, accuracy, and comprehension, but they will be able to address their writing skills, learn cursive, and build their vocabulary/grammar skills.

I am excited for the 2021-2022 school year and look forward to many wonderful learning experiences with your child.
