About me:
My name is Mrs. Hudson and I am in my second year teaching 4th grade here at The Mount.  I was in administration before I came here for 1 year.  I missed teaching too much so I went back.  Previously, before that I taught at another Catholic School for 21 years . I have my Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education  (k-8) and I also have my highly qualified teaching status in the state of New Hampshire.  I have taught first, third, fourth, and fifth grades.   I am born and raised in Manchester.  I am married to my wonderful husband Geoff and I have two teenagers.  Jack is 19 and a sophomore at Plymouth State and Abigail is 17 and a senior at Central High School. I also have a cat named Fenway.  I love all the Boston Sports and Disney!!
