Claire is excited to join the Fusion Rockville family after serving in different teaching positions for the last 9 years. Whether it was working in private or public education, she thrived in a teaching environment that promoted creativity, collaboration, and project-based learning- that is why she was drawn to the Fusion model! She completed her masters in teaching in 2015 and is now currently pursuing her doctorate in curriculum and instruction. Claire comes from a family of educators and loves to infuse technology and new ideas into her teaching practice. She also loves to coach sports, which she draws on from her background of playing high school sports and as a collegiate soccer player. When Claire isn’t trying to find the latest and greatest educational idea or professional development opportunity for teachers, she loves to try out new restaurants in the DMV, dance to electronic dance music and all the greatest hits from the 80’s, along with traveling to different historical landmarks on the east coast.
