About Claire

imageI have taught English as a Second Language for nine years.  Last year, I started teaching half-time French. I’m a bona fide book worm and advocate for The Power of Reading to level the playing field for disadvantaged children.  Every lesson I teach is driven first and foremost to foster a love for reading.

I am a graduate of the University of Tennessee with a Masters of Science in English as a Second Language Education.  I am a very proud graduate of Converse College with a degree in Modern Foreign Languages.  Thanks to my alma mater, I’m a huge believer in the power of women’s colleges to bring about a more equitable society.
