Clara Bennion currently teaches Forensic Science, Environmental Chemistry, and Biology at Camdenton High School. In addition to her teaching duties, Clara was elected to chair the Secondary Science Work Group for HB 1490, which was charged with the development of the new secondary science Missouri Learning Standards. The group spent a total of 123 hours researching standards from various states, as well as the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). They also solicited Missouri citizen and teacher feedback on the standards as they were written. Thanks to her excellent leadership, the group submitted their final product to the State Board of Education in October 2015.
