• Hi! My name is Chris McClelland and I am a Teacher for the Deaf at Taft Elementary School.  I have been teaching for 20 years and I LOVE my job!  I am originally from Portland, Oregon, where I worked as a high school DHH Itinerant Teacher for 10 years. I moved here 14 years ago to Southern CA and I have been teaching 2nd, 3rd and 4th grade Deaf/HH students for the last 10 years.

    I have been married for 24 years, and I have 3 wonderful children, McKenzie (22), Madison (20), and Brayden (17), and a dog (Tanner).

    When I am not working, I enjoy traveling, watching my children play sports, going to concerts and movies, bowling, and relaxing with family and friends.
