In February 2013 she started working with Global Leaders after processing coffee with her family for 9 years. Claudia values the strengths taught at GL, including leadership, integrity and honesty.
Claudia also believes that by stepping out of our comfort zones we can become global leaders today to help meet people’s basic needs: identity, education, expression, dignity, and respect.
For 16 years, Joe taught Geography, History and Leadership classes at Thompson Valley High School in Loveland, Colorado, and Menlo-Atherton High School in Atherton, California. In 1993, he won the Colorado Governor’s Excellence in Education Award and in 1998, he was named Thompson Valley High School’s Teacher of the Year. Joe holds a B.A in Social Sciences and an M.A. in Educational Leadership both from Colorado State University.
Inspired by the promise of the energy for change that is so bright in our youth, Laurel is excited to share her passion for engagement and awareness with Global Leaders’ students. In 2016, she worked with colleague Cass Poncelow to develop the new GL Girls’ Rites program, and will lead students on their first journey in the summer of 2018.
