Meet Miss Stacie
Dedicated & Certified
Stacie Clark has been the directress of The Children’s school since 2014. As an early literacy expert and one of the original parents who formed the Montessori co-operative over twenty years ago, she blends her passion and experience to create a truly unique learning environment.
Stacie obtained her Bachelor in Education from the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater where she was the first Inductee into the Educational Hall of Fame. That year she was also the recipient of the Sally Mae National Teaching Award. She spent some time teaching and conducting research in Australia and Japan and then went on to complete her Masters degree in Reading Education from the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh. Stacie has spent many years teaching elementary children as well as being a reading specialist. As an active member of the Wisconsin Reading Association she presented several times which lead her to a career as an Educational Consultant. She has worked with many districts long term developing programs, presenting best practices and methodology, coaching teachers and administrators and working with a variety of children in the area of literacy.
After many years consulting and raising her own children, who are graduates of The Children School, Stacie reunited with her love of teaching young children. Stacie spent a year as a substitute teacher at The Children School where her belief and confidence in the Montessori Method was cemented. She observed first-hand an environment where children are learning at their own pace through play, and children helping each other learn through the support of one another.
“I have been so fortunate to be an active parent in this Montessori program, I was able to participate in my own children’s education and now I am teaching other children using a philosophy I so passionately support. I feel truly blessed.” -Stacie Clark
