Meet the teacher

Welcome to my 3rd grade classroom 

Hello everyone! My name is Velvet Clayton and I am a Third grade Reading and Science teacher here at C.G Credle Elementary School. I am so grateful to have, what I believe as, the best job in the world. I have worked with all age levels and I love coming to work each day. I am excited to work with you and get to know each and every one of you better. Scroll down to learn a little bit more about me.

 I, myself, attended CUC  University in Colombia, South America where I received my degree in Elementary Education

 I love to read, watch movies and listen to jazz.

In my free time I love  painting, quilting and crafting. I love learning.

 I am bilingual. I  speak English and Spanish as my native language. Fall is my favorite season. I got a scholarship to study my bachelor's degree. 

I am married and I have a son, he is a computer Engineer. 


My Teaching Philosophy

My beliefs on teaching are short and simple- Everyone Can. I believe that if someone is willing to do something or learn or grow then everyone can accomplish, everyone can succeed, everyone can grow. It is my philosophy that what students are exposed to and develop when they're younger can have an enormous impact on the rest of their lives and it is my mission to instill in my students the belief that they too can do anything they set their mind to, and with my help I hope to guide them along that path.


Have Fun!
