Title IJudy Clarkson
BA in Elementary Education
I taught third grade at St. Mary's for 32 years. After retiring I was hired by Joplin Schools as a Title 1 teacher. This is my sixth year in that position. I attended Catholic school for 12 years and that had a profound effect on me. Therefore, teaching at a Catholic school was a dream come true. I love the students and staff at St. Mary's and consider it a privilege to be able to remain here. I enjoy traveling to see my family and to see new places. Doing yard work and eating out are two of my favorite things to do. I am a member of Sacred Heart Catholic Church and have served as president of their Parish Council.
