Chittenango remembers beloved teacher

Tonight the Chittenango community gathered at the Crossroads Community Church to remember a middle school teacher who died this morning.

Students in this close-knit community were shocked to learn that Colleen Hyland, a well-loved social studies teacher at Chittenango Middle School, had succumbed to the injuries she suffered in a car wreck on her way to work.

Former students shared tears and laughter tonight as they remembered an educator whose unique and hands-on teaching style left a lasting impression on her students.
