Clare Sykora

Special Education Teacher

At Joya since 2017

Practicing Special Education Teacher since 2004


Born and raised in Washington state, Clare was immersed in the world of education growing up in a small town with both parents teaching in the local schools. From an early age, she wanted to be a teacher and after attending Gonzaga University, she fell in love with working with, and learning from, children with special needs. Following her passion of working with kiddos with special needs, Clare transitioned from working in public schools to Joya Child & Family Development and has felt at home ever since. She fully embraces her role as teacher and parent coach and soaks up her time with her family at home in the garden and baking delicious creations.
