Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Jennifer Clark

I have been teaching at Montclaire since 2004. I started as a third grade teacher for the first five years and then made the jump to fifth grade when I needed to mix things up. I enjoyed teaching third grade but I absolutely love the spunk and attitude the fifth graders bring every year. In 2018 I was lucky enough to step into the role of upper-grade TOSA where I serve the third, fourth, and fifth-grade students throughout the week.  I didn't think it was possible to fall in love with a career but it happened to me! I couldn't imagine doing any other job. Teaching is my thing and I will do it for the rest of my life!

I am married to my high school sweetheart, Heath. He teaches and coaches football at Los Gatos High School. We have two daughters Ellery and Camille who keep us busy, laughing and awake at night. Being a parent has had a huge affect on my teaching. My respect for parents that have survived having infants and then school age children grows every day! You parents are my heroes!

We have a dog (Barkley) and recently inherited a cat (Freckles). When I'm not teaching or playing with my girls, I enjoy working out and taking naps.
