Claire Ratcliffe received her B.A. in Environmental Studies with minors in Anthropology and Business from the University of Utah in 2010. After graduating, Claire fell in love with education and taught in various informal education settings, including teaching a science camp in Kodiak, Alaska, working as a Marine Naturalist in Maui, and directing a teen program for the Boys & Girls Club. These experiences inspired Claire to pursue her M.S. in Natural Science Education at Teton Science Schools and the University of Wyoming, where she graduated in 2017. Most recently Claire has been teaching STEM to elementary and middle school students at the U.W. Lab School in Laramie, Wyoming, and is pleased to be joining the NCIL team as Education Coordinator I, Professional Development.
