Suzan Puttkamer

        Hi, my name is Suzan Puttkamer and this will be my third 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 twelve years old and will be attending Clayton Middle School as a seventh grader. Luke is a third 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!
