Degrees and Certifications:
Hi, my name is Suzan Puttkamer and this will be my fourth year on the Kindergarten team at West Clayton. I grew up in Syracuse, NY and earned my bachelor's degree in elementary and special education at SUNY Geneseo. In 2003, I moved to North Carolina and spent my first four years of teaching as a special education teacher for grades k-2nd at Wake County Public Schools. I also taught a transition Kindergarten class for ten years at Genesis Christian Preschool.
I am married and have two children. Grace is thirteen years old and will be attending Clayton Middle School as an eighth grader. Luke is nine years old and a fourth grader here at West Clayton. They both play soccer so we spend a lot of time as a family out on the soccer fields. We are all animal lovers. We have a dog named Cleo and a cat named Autumn. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family, running, biking, and swimming. I am also actively involved with the children's ministry at my church.
I am passionate about teaching. My goal as an educator is to create a learning environment where every child will feel special and learn how to treat others with kindness and respect. This will allow each child to grow both academically and socially. I look forward to a great year!
