Hello! Welcome to kindergarten! I am so excited to have your child in my class this year! My name is Claire Ganci. I was born and raised in Chatham. I attended Chatham schools myself kindergarten through senior year! I realized that education was my passion from an early age. I come from a family of educators and have loved school since I was in kindergarten.

I graduated from Glenwood High School in 2003 and started my college education at SIUE and continued on my journey in the field of education UIS. During this time I was able to have many wonderful educational opportunities. I worked with students in various local schools across many grade levels, but I always had a soft spot for kindergarten. In November 2013 I completed  my Master’s Degree in Curriculum and Instruction.

In June of 2012 I married my best friend and went from Miss Yurdin to Mrs. Ganci. My husband, Sam, and I live in Chatham with our (almost) 2 year old daughter, Gabby, and two black labs, Ali and Mia. In my free time I love spending time with my friends and family, reading, running, shopping, and I love to travel.

This will be my tenth year teaching. I taught 3rd grade for seven years and this is my thirdyear teaching kindergarten.  I am extremely excited to get to know your child. I want to create a classroom community where we help one another learn. I want every student to feel safe so that they can take risks and aren’t afraid to ask questions. I want our classroom to be a fun and comfortable learning environment. Most of all, I want our class to have the wonderful experience that I did growing up in Chatham Schools!
