     Welcome to Fifth Grade 

    You have brains in your head.

    You have feet in your shoes.

    You can steer yourself in

    any direction you choose.

    Hello! Welcome to a new school year at Tamaqua Elementary!  My name is Cristy Clemson.  I am thrilled to be teaching fifth grade again this year. My teaching experiences include many years in public and private education. I love to spend time with my husband, our chocolate lab, and our children. I am excited for this new school year and all the fun adventures to begin!


    Fun things about me: I love spending time with my family, reading, and running. 


    If you have any questions for me during the school year, you may call the school at 570-668-3306 or email me at cclemson@tamaquasd.org. I will try to return your call either after school or during any available planning periods. Please allow me 24 hours to return your call or email.


    Fifth Graders: Be sure to set a good example for your younger classmates. You should be displaying and abiding by the Raider Rules. Be respectful, have a positive attitude, work on being independent, show your determination, be enthusiastic and responsible, and ultimately you will see success.
