Degrees and Certifications:
Ms. Michelle Clark
John Powers Center has been my second home and family since I was 8 years old. That is when my younger brother started school here. It was then that I realized I wanted to be a Deaf and Hard of Hearing teacher.
I graduated from Illinois State University in 1993 with a bachelor's degree in Deaf education. I also received my early childhood endorsement. As soon as I graduated, I started working towards my master's degree. I attended National Louis University and graduated with a Language and Literacy degree in 1999.
I have taught in SEDOL's Deaf and Hard of Hearing program since 1993. I have taught itinerant students, EC, K, 2-3rd grade and middle school. I've always known my "LOVE" is with early childhood students. Their love and excitement for learning is evident in everything they do. I am always amazed at each child's language and academic growth by the time they move on to kindergarten. Each child's smile warms my heart and makes my day!
