    Hello to all! I am Claudia Crawford, and welcome to my class page. 
    This year's class theme is " A SWEET SPOT TO LEARN".
     
    We will make our class theme this year a "sweet spot to learn" because even though we are continuing to maneuver through a pandemic, my goal is for your children to have a "sweet spot" that they will want to come to and be ready to learn new things.
    I am the proud mother of one daughter and two sons, all grown-up now, whom I reared as a single widowed parent. Children truly are our future. As we look ahead to a new year, first grade is important because it is the foundational year for all subsequent educational years that follow. My aim is to help make the foundation strong as I lead your children into discoveries. 
    I have taught first grade at Wilkinson Gardens for 15 years and it has always been exciting. My training includes a bachelor's degree in early childhood education from Augusta University and a master's degree in education and psychology from Troy University. I consider it a privilege to teach your children because teaching is my true calling.
