Meet Ms. Claflin

August 2015

Dear New Fifth Grader,

I hope you are enjoying your summer. I am very excited to meet you and I am looking
forward to an exciting and fun school year! This will be my fifth year at Har-Bur and I
am thrilled!

A little bit about myself…

I grew up in West Hartford, Connecticut and am the youngest of three children. I have an
older brother who lives in Colorado and an older sister who lives in Maryland. I went to
the University of Wisconsin for my undergraduate degree in Elementary Education. I
previously taught first grade in Illinois and fifth grade in Farmington, CT. I also have my
Masters degree in Special Education from Saint Joseph College in West Hartford.


I spent the summer traveling to visit friends and family. I traveled to Florida,
Maine, and Maryland! My family is rapidly expanding, I have three nieces and
two nephews. I also spent a lot of time reading, relaxing and preparing for
another year at Har-Bur.

I enjoy exercising, reading, listening to music, and spending time with friends
and family. I love sports and cannot wait for football season to start. My
favorite team is the New England Patriots but I also cheer for the Green Bay

I look forward to seeing you soon and learning all about you!

Ms. Claflin
