“When I took Hadfield’s class my senior year I was excited because everyone every year since my freshman year said what a great teacher he was. It was everything I expected. He is the type of teacher that you can tell really loves his job and is passionate about it. He gets up in the morning and decide to be the best he can be for his students. Hadfield teaches American Problems and it’s a class you would really only be able to experience with him. I was able to learn a lot more about the US government system than I would have been able to on my own. He is also a teacher that sacrifices for his students. He once sacrificed his thanksgiving break for us to research and find all the real time analytics for how the government fund is categorized and utilized. This information was not just displayed on a website but had to be searched for. He gives us hands on experience in simulations of different government systems and also gave us a taste of the American judicial system. I will always be grateful for his class and what I learned there and I know hundreds of others students would agree with me. Thank you Aaron Hadfield!”
