Hello, my name is Claire Abney. I am a life-long Slidell resident, and a product of St. Tammany schools. I am married and have one daughter, who is a student here in St. Tammany Parish as well.
This year marks my sixteenth year teaching. I am a graduate of Mississippi College, where I received a BS in Education. I have received additional certifications through Northwestern State University. I have taught at many different grade levels over the years, and am excited to be teaching second grade again this year.
This year, my goal is to create a classroom environment where students can grow academically, socially, and emotionally. I want my students to be engaged in learning, excited about their new knowledge, and feel comfortable trying new things. I want to see each student as an individual, and teach them based on their needs and learning styles.
