Clifford, Ms. C.

Welcome to Ms. Clifford's Class!
I have a Bachelor's degree from the University of San Diego and a Master's degree from the University of North Texas.  Growing up my family moved several times.  For a short while, I attended school right here in Long Hill Township.  I have always wanted to be a teacher, and I am very excited about teaching second grade.  I look forward to working with you this year.
 
Contact:  You may contact me by email  at cclifford@longhill.org or by phone at 908-647-2312 (ext. 2028).  If you have a change in pick up, please call the office since I may not see your email until after school lets out.  Thank you.
