Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Claire Pankratz
I am very excited to be in my 3rd year as the Educational Library Assistant at Washington School! I love books & reading and guiding children towards the perfect book is a real pleasure. I started my career teaching K4 & K5 for MPS. I stayed home with my 3 children for several years and was very involved at their school (Roosevelt). My return to teaching brought me to Wauwatosa Nursery School where for 6 years I taught 4-5 year olds. I then spend 4 years subbing almost full-time here in Wauwatosa before accepting the position in the Washington library. I am here Monday-Wednesday and I still substitute teach occasionally on Thursdays & Fridays. Books exercise a child's imagination and open up their mind to worlds of information and excitement and it is a priveledge to be to be part of this growth.
