Ms. Tracy Mitchell
I am originally from Pennsylvania. There I earned my undergraduate degree in Elementary and Special Education from Slippery Rock University. I began my teaching career in Richmond, Indiana in a specialized program educating students with emotional and behavioral disabilities. While there I earned my Masters in Special Education from Ball State University. After 8 years, I decided to move south. I came to East Clayton in 2005. I have taught 3rd grade for 11 years and 4th grade for 4 years.
I am so glad that we had the pleasure of experiencing this year together. You each have made this year memorable and you hold a very special place in my heart. I wish you the very best as some of you travel on to Thanksgiving Elementary next school year. Have a fantastic summer. I will see some of you around the hallways of East Clayon next school year.
Our class could always utilize paper prducts and cleaning materials, especially this school year.
I have also put together an Amazon Wish List. Our students & myself would love anything anyone is able to give.
It is greatly appreicated. Thank you!
