Claire spent three and a half years in New York City working as a middle school math teacher and then as a learning specialist at the Cornelia Connelly Center. Upon her move to the West Coast, she worked as math teacher at KIPP SF Bay Academy. In addition to teaching, Claire coaches the Middle School Mathletes team, and brings her love of running to San Domenico, where she coaches Upper School cross country and track, and Middle School cross country.
