    Meet Mrs. Spieler
    My name is Kristen Spieler and I am a second grade teacher here at John Hydock Elementary School. I attended Seton Hall University, majoring in Elementary Education and Communications. After graduating from Seton Hall, I taught first grade for three years in Paterson, NJ.  I then taught first grade for several years at JHES and this is my fourth year in second grade.  In my spare time I enjoy reading, shopping online and spending time with my family.  The staff here is amazing and the students and parents are wonderful.  I am proud to be a part of the John Hydock family and look forward to another exciting and fun-filled year!
