My name is Claudia. I’m originally from the Washington DC area, but I moved to Boulder, Colorado in 2015 to attend the University of Colorado Boulder. I studied Communication and Elementary Education. I have been a 4th grade teacher in Denver for the past two years. I have always had a passion for educating, and guiding students through self discovery. I moved to Tamarindo to experience a different lifestyle, and to teach at a school that follows an alternative teaching style. I am very excited to be a part of the TIDE community, and to get to know our students and their families!
