A veteran teacher and an author whose books have helped millions of children learn to read has joined Ridgefield’s Board of Education.
“I was a teacher for 20 years and I’m on a leave of absence this year,” said Nora Gaydos. “And I’m actually not going to go back to the classroom, so I’m sort of closing that door. I’m also a children’s author. I have for the past several years been a teacher and a writer, and I’m going to now focus on the writing.”
