Ms. Claire Takeda
Director of Marketing & Special Events
Ms. Claire was born and raised in Seattle, and after graduating from the University of Washington with a BA in English, her K-8 Teaching Credential, and Masters in Education, she moved to Okayama, Japan where she worked at the headquarters of an English language school. Upon her return to the United States, she moved to California and was overjoyed to find a role at IvyCrest that allowed her to integrate her passion for education, partnering with parents, and of course, working with children! Shortly after joining IvyCrest in 2006, Ms. Claire received her Early Childhood Montessori diploma and is excited about completing the Montessori Elementary course this summer! When she's not cheering on her Seattle Seahawks, Ms. Claire loves to travel with her husband and two boys while exploring new restaurants!
