Degrees and Certifications:
Hi, my name is Suzan Puttkamer and this will be my sixth year on the Kindergarten team at West Clayton. I grew up in Syracuse, NY. I 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 fifteen years old and will be a sophomore at Clayton High School. Luke is eleven years old and will be a sixth grader at Riverwood Middle School. We are all animal lovers. We have a dog named Cleo and a bearded dragon named Leo. I enjoy spending time with my family, running, biking, kayaking, 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!

We hope that you and your student have already noticed some of the exciting new food and meal opportunities we are offering in our cafeterias this school year. Our new options will include more fresh produce, vegetarian options, and opportunities for students to customize their meal choice. These new offerings will be available at both breakfast and lunch.
