Ms. Clark was born in Denver, Colorado and was raised on the east coast in Alabama and Maryland. She comes from a very large, close-knit family and has more than a dozen nieces and nephews who sparked her love of children. She received her bachelor’s degree in sociology with a psychology minor from Brigham Young University in Utah, and she moved to the Bay Area in 2012. In San Francisco, she worked with elementary-aged children for over 3 years and gained experience with preschoolers at Friends of Potrero Hill Preschool. She comes to Grand Lake Montessori after working for a year as an Assistant Teacher in a primary-age classroom at LePort Montessori Preschool in Emeryville. Ms. Clark believes strongly in the Montessori philosophy of allowing children the freedom to explore and learn independently and at their own pace. She has a particular interest in art, stories, film, and geography. She also loves music and plays piano in her spare time.
Hands down, this is a special place on earth and despite the good and bad that comes with disruption in this world for children, I feel good knowing my boys built a good foundation at GLM.
GLM has been a magical place and a transformative experience for my grand daughters!
We are so happy that she can return to GLM. We miss it so much. It is truly a uniquely wonderful school.
