Mr. Russell ClarkMeet Mr. Russell Clark, our November Teacher Spotlight!

How long have you been teaching?

I have spent the last 6 years teaching at Honea Path Elementary. I taught 3rd grade and 5th grade both Math and English Language Arts. I have also taught vocationally over 18 years in ministry. 

What are some of your favorite things about teaching?

Teaching as a profession, regardless of the environment or student, provides opportunities to know yourself. Personal growth can be a result of teaching others and this is something we shouldn't take for granted. Getting to know students and what it takes to help them reach their full potential is my most favorite thing. Students have a huge capacity for greatness and being apart of that process is a wonderful privilege.

What do you hope students will learn and take away from your classes?

I have had great classes. I have had some students with "strong and sweet personalities" I would not take anything for the experiences. I hope each student takes with them the fact that I thought they were the greatest. Each student in their own way was the best. I’d also like for them to know that their dreams are only limited by their determinations to succeed.
