Sara Claiborne

My name is Sara Claiborne and I am thrilled to be joining the Daphne High School family.  I am a special education teacher and will also be working with the athletic department.  


I am a true southern girl. I was born in Tampa, FL where I lived for 6 years before moving to Atlanta, GA for another 6 years.  I moved to Jacksonville, FL in 1999, transferred to the Orlando area in the summer of 2014, and most recently to Mobile in 2017.  My family heritage lies in Louisiana. 


After graduating from Bartram Trail High School in Jacksonville, FL, I graduated from the University of North Florida in 2008 with a Bachelors of Arts in Elementary Education K-5 and in 2017 with a Masters in Special Education.  I had the honor of being awarded Teacher of the Year at Carillon Elementary in 2016 where I was a student council sponsor, hospitality chair and member of the leadership team. 


This will be my 10th year teaching overall, my first here in Baldwin County. Previously I have taught kindergarten, second grade, six years in special education in Florida and one year of special education in Mobile County. 


I am a HUGE LSU Tiger fan, a Saints fan, and now a Trojan! I truly bleed PURPLE AND GOLD!
