Bio

Mrs. Clemens just completed 21 years of teaching in a variety of schools and is excited to begin her next chapter at St. Paul, teaching fourth grade.

Mrs. Clemens was born in Richland Center, WI and also lived in Geneseo, IL during her high school years, attending public schools.  With encouragement from her mom to be a teacher and attend a small Lutheran college, Mrs. Clemens attended Concordia University Wisconsin and received a degree in Elementary Education/Early childhood(minor).

Just after getting married, Mrs. Clemens began her teaching career in Jefferson City, MO in 3rd grade.  She then moved back to Milwaukee area and taught 2nd grade at St. John's, Glendale.  It was there that God called her to pursue special education.  Mrs. Clemens became the Resource Room teacher at St. John's for Lutheran Special School and Educational Services, working with students K-8 in a pull-out program.   Through this organization, she learned to be an advocate for all children and to promote success for each child, especially through differentiation and sensory processing tools.

Mrs. Clemens received her Master's Degree of Arts from Cardinal Stritch University in 2002 with special certifications in Learning Disabilities and Reading Teacher.  She is certified to teach children PK-12.
