Middle School Staff BIOs


Michele Odgen -
Michele Ogden

My name is Michele Ogden. Currently, I teach middle school Science.This school year is my 18th year teaching and my 18th year teaching at OSD. I graduated from Ohio State University with my Bachelor’s degree in Speech and Hearing Science and with my Master’s degree in Deaf Education. I decided to become a teacher after working in a mainstream setting as an aide for deaf students, I realized I wanted to be in the classroom full time. I wanted to work with deaf and hard of hearing students because the language and culture of the deaf drew me in as well as discovering the language deprivation that many deaf students face led me to want to become involved. When I am not teaching, I enjoy reading, spending time with my family, gardening, and exercising.

My name is Susie Bachtel. Currently, I teach Middle School Math. This school year is my 26th year teaching at OSD. I graduated from Gallaudet University with my Bachelor’s degree in Secondary Education with Mathematics and from Lewis & Clark College with my Master’s degree in Deaf Education. I decided to become a teacher with deaf and hard of hearing students because I want to help them become better mathematicians and know what it is like to learn math. When I am not teaching, I enjoy walking my dog and bowl in the deaf tournaments. I like getting together with family and friends.

When I am not teaching, I enjoy hiking, reading, and swinging in a hammock with my husband or kids. My favorite thing about working at OSD is being able to find ways to make my instruction easier for my students to learn and benefit from it.

Morgan Sipka
Morgan Sipka

My name is Morgan Sipka. Currently, I teach middle school Social Studies. This school year is my 4th year teaching at OSD. I graduated from Kent State University with my Bachelor’s degree for Intervention Specialist: Deaf and Hard of Hearing with an additional certification in Deaf Education: Multiple Disabilities. My favorite quote is, "People don't care how much you know, until they know how much you care." I feel that it directly applies to students and their need to know that their educators care about their successes, in order to learn at their best. I wanted to become a teacher because I love being around children and helping them to learn more about the world around them as a whole. As they learn more, they become better friends and citizens in our communities. All of our individual talents work together to make our communities great. I also chose to become a teacher because multi-tasking ninja isn’t an official job title. What I love most about my job is that I get to do it with these special kids. They put a smile on my face, motivate me to do better, and keep me energized!


Angela Moore
Angela Moore

My name is Angela Moore. Currently, I teach all subjects for my middle school multiple disabled students. This school year is my 12th year teaching and my 5th year teaching at OSD. Prior to teaching at OSD, I taught at Otterbein University. I graduated from University of Toledo with my Bachelor’s degree in Education and University of Toledo with my Master’s degree in Education. I decided to become a teacher because I was blessed with great teachers. I wanted to work with deaf and hard of hearing students because I wanted to pass on what I have learned. Education is not meant to keep within but to share with others. When I am not teaching, I enjoy working with plants outdoors or run on trails at state parks.
