Claudia Summers

As a child and teenager I grew up in a Marine Corps family, which gave me the opportunity to live in a variety of places meeting new friends and learning about different cultures. I am married to Don Summers. We have two wonderful adult children, Steven and Kate, and our dog, Charlie.

I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Social Work from George Mason University and my Teaching Credential from California State Monterey Bay. Later, I continued my education by receiving a Master of Arts in Teaching from Grand Canyon University.

I have been teaching since 1997 in grades kindergarten through 5th in the Monterey Peninsula School District. 

Favorite subject/thing to teach?

I enjoy teaching each subject.

Most memorable experience at Del Rey Woods

Some of my most memorable experiences of DRW are when my previous students return to say hi and tell me about their lives.

Favorite book

I enjoy reading novels and periodicals.

Favorite quote

One of my favorite quotes is “Do to others as you would have them do to you.” - The Golden Rule
