Hello! My name is Allie Clark and I am a 1st grade teacher at Carlisle Elementary. The 2018-2019 school year will be my 7th year teaching at Carlisle. I taught kindergarten for 4 years, and 1st grade for 3. I love teaching first grade because it is amazing to see the tremendous growth that occurs throughout the year. The students grow so much and really become passionate readers. I am looking forward to another great year!
I grew up in Monticello, Iowa but my husband and I now call Carlisle home. We have an almost-three-year old son, Sullivan. I am due with our second child in November! I graduated from the University of Northern Iowa (Go Panthers!) with degrees in Elementary Education, Early Childhood Education, and have endorsements in Literacy and Special Education. My husband and I are avid Panther fans and attend many sporting events. In my free time I'm chasing around a busy toddler, spending time with friends and family, traveling with my husband, enjoying the outdoors, reading, and enjoying the many events and activities Des Moines has to offer.
