My name is Elizabeth Clayton, I am excited to be Waterford Graded School Districts new Early Childhood Special Education Teacher. I have been teaching in the field of early childhood education for 17 years, as early learning is a strong passion of mine. My education includes a Bachelors of Science in Psychology and a Bachelors of Science in Early Childhood Special Education from Saint Mary’s University. When I am not working with young people I enjoy spending my personal time with family, friends, and my dog. Some of my favorite things to do include; gardening, yoga, hiking, camping, and reading mysteries in my hammock. I look forward to starting this school year in the Waterford community.
