2nd Grade


I am a 1983 graduate of Perry High School - GO PANTHERS!!! Upon graduating from high school, I worked as a Legal Assistant for Nunn, Geiger, & Pierce law firm in Perry, which eventually became Geiger & Pierce. I soon decided that law was not my calling and made the decision to go into education due to the fact that I absolutely love being around, and helping children. I have an Associates Degree from Macon State College, a Bachelors' Degree from Georgia Southwestern College in Americus, and a Masters Degree from Piedmont College, all in Early Childhood Education.
I am in my 24th year of teaching and have enjoyed every minute of it!!!! I started out teaching 1st grade at Tucker Elementary. I also taught 1st grade at Perry Elementary and Perry Primary. Then, I decided to try a new adventure and took a 2nd grade position here at Kings Chapel. This year I've taken on a new position as EIP Reading Teacher. This is my 14th year at KCES and I am very proud to be a KCES Cougar!! Teaching is a true blessing each and every day. It warms my heart to see children so excited about learning new things!!
I am happily married to Argene Claxton who is also an educator. He is an Agriculture Teacher and FFA Advisor at Perry High School. We have two wonderful children - Katie and Tyler. Katie is married to Cody and they have two beautiful children, Lilla and Wyatt. Katie is a County Extension Agent in Burke County. Tyler is a senior at UGA majoring in Environmental Engineering with a minor in Environmental Soil Science.
In my spare time, what little I have, I enjoy scrap booking, reading, and taking walks. I also enjoy relaxing on the beach or curled up next to a warm fire in the mountains with a good book or magazine to keep me company.
