Hi Team 45 - Coach Cleff here! I'm so excited to have you in my classroom this year! I've been in education for 36 years and have been here as part of the Shoemaker family for the past 12 years. I come from a family of teachers. My grandmother was a Physical Education teacher and I actually had my mom (in second grade) and my uncle (in fifth grade) as my classroom teachers! My favorite subject to teach is reading, but I really enjoy math too!
Mr. Cleff and I have one son, Dan, who manages the Box Office for the Barclay Center in Brooklyn, NY- very cool for a guy who likes sports and concerts. In my spare time I love to read, visit the beach and work in my garden.
I look forward to seeing you in August!
