My name is Claire Hudzinski, “Ms. Claire” and I have been teaching for over 23  years.  I graduated from East Carolina University with a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in Dance with a concentration in jazz dance and I have my license in Art Education. I am a former dance studio owner/dance teacher and switched careers mid-life! I was the musical theatre director at Mangum Elementary until Covid.  I have two boys (both are Mangum graduates), one who is a graduate of Riverside participating in the NCTAP program and one who is in 9th grade who loves to play the drums and will be attending Riverside's for their Engineering Program.  I also have a black cat named Essy.  I grew up going through DPS!

Outside of teaching, I enjoy reading, being creative and I have a love for photography & theatre.  I love officially being a staff member of Mangum Elementary.
