         Hi there!  My name is Mrs. Clark and I teach fifth grade.  This is my eighteenth year teaching and my sixteenth year at Spearman.  I have taught second, third, and fifth grade.  
         I love teaching!  I have a master’s degree in education (Southern Wesleyan University) and a bachelor’s degree in elementary education (Clemson University).  I have a difficult time picking what my favorite things are to teach, but most of the time I would pick math.  When I was little, I sometimes had difficulty with math.  I love teaching math now because I like to make it less difficult than it was for me!  That being said, my absolute favorite part of the day is our read aloud time.  I love sharing stories and doing book talks.
       I grew up in Massachusetts, where my parents still live.  I love where I grew up and like to go visit often.  There are more cows than people in the town that I grew up in, which means we eat lots of ice cream in the summertime!  I have one sibling, my brother, who moved to Hawaii in May.  I hope I'll be able to visit him soon!
       I live with my husband, Jesse, our daughters, Colette and Sawyer, and our dog, Fenway.  He is named after Fenway Park, where the Boston Red Sox play!  Some of the things I love to do include spending time with my family, baking and cooking, reading, going running, watching football and baseball (the Clemson Tigers, New England Patriots, and Boston Red Sox, specifically) and spending time with family and friends.  Colette is in the first grade and Sawyer will be three in September.
