Hello Parents, Guardians, and Students!
My name is Mrs. Marcy Labedz. I am excited about being your Fourth Grade teacher this year. This is my second year at Arrowhead Elementary. In November of 2021, I started working at Arrowhead as a long-term substitute teacher in 6th grade and then in 5th grade. In 1999, I graduated from the University of Illinois at Chicago with a Bachelor's of Science Degree in Management. In 2001, I graduated from The John Marshall Law School with a Juris Doctor Degree in Law. Prior to teaching, I worked as an attorney in the Law Offices of Kurowski-Labedz LLC, running my own law practice, as well as a Prosecutor and Defense Attorney for the City of Chicago.
I was born in Jaslo, Poland and moved to the United States when I was 6 years old. I grew up in the Chicagoland area. I speak Polish. I am married and have 2 children: Joanna and Joseph. In January 2020, we moved to Arizona. After becoming involved in the PTO and working as a substitute teacher at Arrowhead Elementary, I decided that nothing makes me happier than to share my knowledge, skills, and life experiences with my students. In my spare time, I love to travel, read, study, volunteer, and spend time with my family.
I look forward to working with you this year, as we experience another year of excellent learning!
