Claire Jones, 2nd Grade Teacher - Edison Elementary
Claire's Statement: “I love the relationships I have built with my students and colleagues. I have been blessed to have been in the same building for the past 14 years, having students come back to visit and seeing the progress and growth they have made is rewarding. Also, the connections I have built with so many people in the district has made me the teacher I am today. I am so lucky to be a Wayne-Westland teacher.”
Tyler Bennett, Principal Quote: “Claire Jones is an outstanding 2nd grade teacher at Edison. She is on our School Improvement Team and is always willing to help around the school. Mrs. Jones has worked with a student teacher this fall and has done an excellent job preparing a future teacher. Students enjoy coming to school because of Mrs. Jones and we are lucky to have her on our team!”
