Hi! I am Clary French and I am so excited to be teaching ELA and Social Studies in 5th grade at Oakland this year! I recently moved to Charleston after teaching in Wilmington, NC for the past 15 years. I have received my Master's Degree in Elementary Education and my National Board Certification. I spent my first 13 years as a classroom teacher in grades 3-5, but was lucky enough to have the opportunity to spend 2 years as a technology teacher in grades K-5. Teaching and students are my passion! I will do everything I can to ensure your child feels safe and is given all the tools needed to succeed! I will work side by side with my students to instill a love in reading, writing,  and history as we examine, analyze, explore, create, learn, and grow together! I believe in meeting every student where they are and providing individualized support as they set and meet their goals! We are going to have a FABULOUS year!

I believe that communication and involvement is crucial to a student’s success in school. Email me anytime with any concerns, questions, and needs! I am here for you!
