Welcome to Mrs. Edwards' Explorers.

     My name is Claire Edwards.  I graduated from IU in 1993 with a degree in Elementary Education.  My first teaching job was at North Central teaching Special Education.  After taking a break to raise children, I returned to the classroom in 2009.  This is my sixth year teaching at West Clay in the 2/3 GT program.  I am currently finishing my last class for my High Ability LIcence.

     I grew up in Indianapolis, and currently live in Carmel with a wonderful husband, three super children, and two big lazy dogs.  My husband J.D. and I have been married 21 years and have a 19 year old daughter and two sons ages 17 and 12.  My daughter is starting her Sophmore year in college and my two boys both attend Carmel Schools.

     I have many hobbies and interests.  I enjoy cooking and baking, especially using my fresh veggies and herbs from my garden.  I love to travel with my family.  I enjoy spending time at the beach and skiing in the mountains.  One of my favorite past times is reading all types of literature. 

    I am looking forward to an extraordinary year with each of you.
