  • Welcome to First Grade!!

    My name is Clare Eley and I am thrilled to be your child's teacher for the 2017-2018 school year at PES! This is my first year teaching first grade at Pontchartrain Elementary School. Last year, I was the intervention specialist here at PES for first, second, and third grade and before that, I taught Pre-Kindergarten for three years at a private preschool. I love teaching and I love all my students!!

    I was born and raised in New Orleans, the daughter of two teachers. My mom is an elementary teacher and my dad is a college professor. Some people say teaching is just in my genes! I graduated from Louisiana State University with a Bachelor of Arts degree. GEAUX TIGERS! I am certified to teach grades pre-kindergarten through third. At PES, we strive to have every student not only learn, but to help them become lifelong learners. The skills we practice in first grade are the building blocks for your child's future success in school and in life!

    Research shows that a relationship between the parent, the student, and the teacher are crucial for promoting an educational climate conducive to learning. With that in mind, I am looking foward to working with you and your child as we make a difference that will last a lifetime. Please feel free to contact me anytime. I can be reached through a handwritten note, through the school office, or via email at 

    This year is going to "rock"!!

    Pontchartrain Proud!
