A Little Bit About Me
My name is Michele Claypool. This will be my 22nd full year at Haw River Elementary.
I am originally from Erie, Pennsylvania and graduated from Mercyhurst College, which is now
Mercyhurst University. I graduated in 1992 with a BA in Elementary and Early Childhood Education.
I taught in pre-school in Ohio and a private school in Pennsylvania before coming to North Carolina.
I moved North Carolina in February of 1997 after accepting a 4th grade teaching position at Haw River.
In my little more than 22 years at Haw River I have taught 4th grade, 3rd grade, 1st grade and Kindergarten.
I have spent a majority of my years, at Haw River teaching Kindergarten and 1st Grade.
My husband and I have two daughters, Paige and Bailey. Paige a 2016 graduate of East Carolina University.
She currently works for Novant Hospital in Charlotte and pursuing a degree in nursing from Carolinas College of Health Sciences.
Bailey is currently a sophomore at Appalachian State University pursuing a degree in special education.
I am looking forward to an exciting year of learning with our children.
