         Hi there!  My name is Mrs. Clark and I teach fifth grade.  This is my fifteenth year teaching and my twelth 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 and brother still live.  I love where I grew up and like to go visit often.  There are more cows that people in the town that I grew up in, which means we eat lots of ice cream in the summertime!  I moved down here to attend Clemson University, and never left the South!  
       I live with my husband, Jesse, our daughter, Colette, 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 spend time with my family, bake and cook, read, go running, watch football and baseball (the Clemson Tigers, New England Patriots, and Boston Red Sox, specifically) and spend time with family and friends.  Colette will be four in October and we will be welcoming a baby girl to our home this September.
