Miss Claire Westbury

Here I am...Miss Westbury :)  Most commonly known around campus as: "...that teacher who loves Pirates".  I am a proud daugter of immigrant parents and the first American born in my family.  Culture and community are the foundation of our class (which I refer to as a 'ship') and we do things together.  Students in my class become 'Pirates' and learn that they are the center of our universe.  Everything done is done with the students' best academic interest first.  We are creative, kind, caring, respectful, responsible and fun (oh my gosh, she typed the 'f' word!  Yes, it CAN be fun!!!).  This will be a year to remember.

I've been a teacher in the Deer Valley Unified School District for the last 17 years and I am excited to set sail aboard our classroom ship, "The Arrow", for another adventurous academic year! This year, we will be covering a wide variety of academics ranging in various depths of knowledge and the expectation is ALL pirates will be encouraged to go above and beyond the expectations at ALL times.  Our class is very challenging because Pirates deserve to be pushed towards excellence.  In our classroom, we don't do easy...we make easy happen through hard work and learning.  All Pirates are role models around our campus and we always follow ALL school rules ALL the times.  Pirates can always expect to make sure that SNAP and FLASH are actively happening because RESPECT happes all day, every day.  Our ship is a great place to be.  It's my favorite, actually.
