While earning a degree in International Affairs from the University of Georgia, she developed a passion for understanding educational systems’ impact on communities. After spending a year teaching English in Madrid, Spain, Claire moved to Colorado to teach for Rocky Mountain Prep. During her four years in classrooms, Claire prioritized partnerships with parents and families, knowing that they are our students’ first and longest lasting teachers and advocates.
