Claire Piper

Hi I’m Claire, and I’m thrilled to be joining the team at U Co-op!

This will be my eighth year in the classroom. I love what I do, and I’m passionate about creating a safe and loving environment where children can thrive & fully develop into who they are meant to be. Learning requires courage, and I want to create learning experiences where children feel safe enough to try hard things and risk the chance of failure because they know that they are surrounded by a learning community who will lift them up no matter what. I grew up in Denver, where I’ve lived my whole life until moving to Seattle this year. I graduated from Regis University, and I’ve learned to speak Spanish. I love anything to do with the outdoors! On the weekends you can find me running, rock climbing, backcountry skiing, or backpacking with my husband. I also love yoga, reading, cooking, woodworking, and spending time with my friends, family, cats, and Bunbuns my rabbit!
