Degrees and Certifications:
Mr. Jeffrey Hudak
I grew up in the small town of Catasauqua, Pennsylvania located just a few minutes outside of Allentown. I spent my college years at the University of Pittsburgh and graduated in 2010. Upon graduation, I was accepted into a program called Teach For America. As a member of Teach For America, I was provided with an amazing opportunity to teach students from low-income communities in Memphis, Tennessee. During my time in Memphis, I spent four years teaching middle school social studies at Veritas College Preparatory Charter School and was honored to be selected as the 2013 Middle School Teacher of the Year by the Tennesee Charter School Association. After teaching in Memphis, I relocated back to Pennsylvania where I spent two years teaching middle school social studies in Philadelphia. I accepted a 5th grade teaching position at Gayman Elementary School in 2016. My time at Gayman has been incredible, and I look forward to the years ahead!
Outside of the classroom, I enjoy fishing and hunting as well as kayaking and hiking with my amazing wife Jessica. I also like to try my hand at craftmenship from time to time. We are HUGE Notre Dame football fans. Go Irish!! And I can't forget to mention that we have the cutest Silky Terrier named Donatello.
