2019~2020 SVE PTO Board

Brittney Hadden~ President

Hi everyone! My name is Brittney and I am the SVE PTO President for the year. I am happily married to my husband Chris, who is often 'voluntold' with many PTO tasks and I couldn't be anymore appreciative of his kind heart. At the time I am writing this, we have 2.5 children; Owen who is in 3rd grade, Parker who is attending pre-school, and Natalie who is expected to arrive in August. In addition to this lovely bunch, we also have one of the sweetest boxers you will ever meet named Daisy. Based off of her name, you can guess we are huge Disney fans and try to visit Disney World as often as possible; we just can't help ourselves! I love talking and getting to know people, so please don't be shy around me and introduce yourself; I'll most likely greet you with a smile :-D As your PTO President, I am excited to get to know you and share your enthusiasm for the upcoming school year!

I live in Willow Glen North with my husband, Joe, our 2 cats (Jasper and Dusty), and Ben’s 2 guinea pigs (Blackie and Brownie). I am also the chairperson for the ES book fairs, and co-chair for Holiday Shop. In addition to volunteering as much as possible, I’m also a part time pharmacy technician and baton twirling instructor.
