Claire Baccus

Hello! My name is Claire Baccus, and this is my first year teaching 6th grade at Walnut Grove. I grew up in Birmingham and graduated from the University of Alabama with a degree in Telecommunication and Film. I received my master's degree from UAB in Elementary Education. I taught for two years in Birmingham. I moved with my family to Fayetteville, TN in 2014, and I homeschooled my children until I came back into the workplace in 2019. I was an instructional aide at Walnut Grove for two years before transitioning into the 6th grade position. My husband's name is Daniel, and we have been married for 13 years. We have a daughter, Avery, who is 10, and a son, Colt, who is 8. We also have two miniature dachshunds, Indy and Anna. I love to read and run!
