Mrs. Traci Clayton
Hello! I am so glad to know you!
I am so very excited for my second year as a part of the Sunnyvale family. This is such a wonderful community and I am looking forward to building long lasting relationships with my students and their families. I am currently working on my M.Ed. in Educational Administration through Stephen F. Austin State University and will graduate in the summer of 2020. I have a BSEd from Baylor University (Sic 'em!), and in addition to my experience as a 5th Grade ELA/R teacher, I have also taught 7th Grade ELA. I have such a love for the written word, so you'll often find my nose in a book or my fingers typing ferociously as I work on some of my own writing. My goal is to create a world for my students that evokes the imagination and gives excitement to the inner child. I believe that when we explore, we learn to understand words and ideas that are not said or written and find deeper meaning in the stories we read.
Before my love of reading, however, stands my love for my family. My husband, Tony and I have two daughters, Mackenzi (10) and Piper (8). We love spending time together, our church, playing, dancing, working on our comedy skits (that may or may not be funny only to us), and our four-legged brother, Riley.
I can't wait to work with you and experience the best school year yet!
