Our daughter, Elizabeth Winder, had Sra. Paz for third grade at Cesar Chavez. Sra. Paz was her favorite teacher and we loved her too. Her gentle and compassionate way of teaching was perfect for Elizabeth. I was fortunate to be a garden and circulo parent in her class and I appreciated Claudette for her delightful personality. She is a beautiful person who we will miss very much. Our sympathy to her family.
