Claire made her way to Kansas City after graduating from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. She met her husband Scott (a KC native and Mizzou grad) her second year here. Both are high school educators; she teaches English while he often schools her in history. After living in Waldo and then Overland Park, they decided to move south to Olathe with their two small children -- Evan 5 & Abbie 3. Claire regularly spends time advocating for early childhood education/intervention and is always looking for ways to become more civically engaged. She loves cheering on the Huskers and the Royals, date nights, reading five books at once, writing, contemplating the deeper issues of Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood, and listening to her kids giggle together. Catch some of those giggles on Instagram @clairebear_kc.
