New Face at FISD

FHS is excited to add Stephanie Clarke to its CTE Department. Mrs. Clarke teaches Technology & Communication; Principles of Business, Marketing & Finance; and Business Information Management-II. Stephanie graduated from Iowa State University. She and her husband, Mike, have been married 25 years and have two four-legged “kids”, Mia the cat and Marleigh the dog. Stephanie enjoys swimming and reading.

Stephanie spent 25 years in the technology industry, but two years ago she started teaching. According to Stephanie, her grandmother influenced her desire to go into public service, “My grandmother went to Iowa State Teachers College and was a librarian who held a daily ‘story hour’ until the day she died. She also read to the elderly in her local nursing home and sponsored a book program for rural children during the summer. She always encouraged me to volunteer for programs to help the young and the elderly -- and she believed education is the most important thing in life”.
