Welcome to 6th Grade!  I am Monique Haselden, one of your  6th grade teachers. I have been teaching at Rainbow Elementary since its opening in 2001.  Over the course of the years, I have taught 1st and 6th grade.  Upon learning this, people always ask me which one I like best.  Well, having taught multiple grade levels and subjects, along with being the parent of a struggling student, gives me a greater understanding and a profound respect for different learning perspectives and styles. As a parent and a teacher, I am constantly amazed by what my children and students teach me as they put forth their best effort to reach their highest level of individual achievement.  I am looking forward to a great year with our students and parents as we nurture them into becoming life-long learners. 

When I am not at school, I juggle my time amongst my family and their recreational needs and interests.  I am fortunate to be married to the ever-patient and understanding Bert Haselden.  We have two children, a 7th grader at Discovery and a junior at Mississippi State who also marches as a member of the Famous Maroon Band.  We can usually be spotted driving between the YMCA, ACA A.K.A. HAC, Huntsville Tennis Center, and wherever are children are participating in their various activities.
