Claudette




Claudette haunts the cellar of Fiegle Elementary. It's a dark and damp cellar with many spiders and cobwebs. Claudette doesn't mind, she rather likes the peacefulness and solitude. She does occasionally go upstairs to give Ms. Montgomery a scare, she was never a very nice kindergarten teacher and Claudette delights in giving her a fright from time to time.


I created Claudette to haunt old Ms Montgomery. She was my kindergarten teacher many years ago at Fiegle Elementary in Plymouth Michigan. I remember practicing for a Hawaiian recital in which all of the girls had to learn how to hula dance. I, of course had no rhythm and kept stepping on the girls toes next to me. Ms. Montgomery, got angry with me and decided that I would have to be a mermaid. She fitted me with a big paper fin and I sat flipping the thing while all the pretty girls in their grass skirts danced at that recital. I much enjoy the thought of Claudette haunting old Ms. Montgomery these days. No worries though, Claudette would never hurt a soul, a little haunting never hurt anyone.
