What have you done after high school? (College, jobs, etc.)
“I originally went to Baylor University my freshmen year in college,” Clark said. “Then transferred to Midwestern State University sophomore year and stayed there until I graduated with my degree in Special Education.”
What made you want to do what you are doing now?
“I have always had a love for working with kids and I have a lot of patience,” Clark said.
What did you learn/experience in high school affect you in college and beyond?
“Time management,” Clark said. “I participated in school cheer which takes up a lot of time, along with my competitive team. It allowed me to learn how to balance my time for school work, cheer and friends without any one thing overwhelming the others.”
Explain your job now, what you are doing, the different aspects of your job.
“I currently am the resource math teacher at legacy high school,” Clark said. “I teach algebra 1, geometry and math models.”
What are your plans for the future?
“I would like to further my education by earning a master’s degree in the next year or so,” Clark said.
What is your advice to current high schoolers?
“Enjoy life to the fullest,” Clark said. “In high school, most students have very few responsibilities. Those things can double and sometimes triple for life after high school so now is the time to enjoy it and make sure to be involved in as much as you can.”
