WSASCD is pleased to introduce Claire Carter, the incoming executive director! In addition to her new role with, Claire is also a clinical instructor for Moreland University, teaching master’s in education courses and supporting student teaching candidates globally. She loves supporting teachers using a strengths-based approach to the inquiry cycle for improving their practice, and therefore outcomes for students.  She is thrilled at the opportunity to expand this impact to teachers and their efforts in “promoting promising practices to ensure all students are safe, healthy, engaged, supported, and challenged” in Washington State.

Claire has experience developing and implementing strategic plans at the school level as a principal and at the corporate level in my work as a Customer Success Manager and Professional Learning Director in the field of educational technology and teacher evaluation.As along-time professional in the field of education, she has worked with a variety of organizations, from Boards of Directors, local school systems, and unions. Education is all about building relationships with a community of teachers, administrators, board leaders, and even legislators.

Claire has a deep passion and commitment to teachers and student, and desire to make a positive impact on the lives of others with caring support. WSASCD is so fortunate to have Claire’s leadership to continue the important work and mission of this organization.

As I move away from the WSASCD executive coordinator role, I will continue to champion WSASCD and their mission to serve the Whole Child. Good things are coming for WSASCD members, as this organization will continue to be innovative in serving each of YOU with the Whole Educator in mind. It has been an honor to lead and contribute to an organization that offers valuable resources and programs to support educators across our state.  Thank you for this opportunity to learn, teach, and lead!
