My name is Ms. Clayton, your friendly ESOL teacher!
I am originally from Rochester, NY and attended RCSD schools. I received my Masters Degree from Fredonia State University of New York in 2012 for Teaching English for Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL). At Fredonia I also earned a Bachelors of Science in Early Childhood Education in 2010 and a Bachelor of the Arts in English and Women's Studies in 2007. I love learning! I am a writer, a reader, a musician and a language learner. I have studied French, Spanish and Arabic.This is my fourth year as a teacher in the Rochester City School District. I believe in teaching peace, embracing cultures, and fostering students' curiosity and creativity to develop their skills in English and success in school. I also value family involvement in learning and work to develop connections between home and school.
