Welcome! My name is Valiree Coyt. This will be my 5th year teaching at East Clayton Elementary! My undergraduate degree in Elementary Education was earned from Appalachian State University. I also have a Master's Degree in Reading Education from East Carolina University. I have a deep love of reading and share that love with my students. I believe the ability to read is absolutely essential! It is my goal to help students become life long readers and life long learners. I am so excited to get to work with you and your child this year! Please sign up for Remind as this will be my primary means of contacting you (information was in the packet you received at orientation).
