Mrs. Clark began teaching Preschool after she graduated from Chapman University in 2006 with a BA in Liberal Studies with an emphasis in Physical Education. After teaching for three years she decided to go back to school and get her Master’s Degree from Azusa Pacific University in Educational Counseling. In Mrs. Clark’s career of teaching at La Purisima Catholic School, she has taught a total of 5 years of Preschool and is in her second year as the Preschool Director. Mrs. Clark was also the Physical Education teacher for grades TK-8th grade for two years as well as the Athletic Director and Junior High volleyball coach.
Mrs. Clark has had many influential mentors in her life that have played an important role in shaping her into the Teacher/Director she is today. She played volleyball in college all four years and learned many wonderful traits that have supported her role as a responsible, hard working and dedicated teacher and Director. Mrs. Clark strives to help her students become responsible, creative and independent life long learners. She provides opportunities for her students to acquire the skills needed to meet the demands of the present while preparing them for the challenges of the future through a Christ-centered program.
Mrs. Clark is very excited to be back at La Purisima after she took a few years off to start a family. She is a mom of two boys ages two and four. She enjoys spending time with her family outside of school and is very thankful to be back as part of the La Purisima family.
