Our Principal

 

Dear Clark Families,

I wanted to formally introduce myself, tell you more about my background in education, and update you on some upcoming events and needs.

I have had the opportunity to serve in a wide variety of schools throughout my educational career, including Elementary Schools, Middle Schools, schools where students struggled academically, a California Distinguished school, and schools with specialty focuses on Visual and Performing Arts, Science, and Mathematics. This is my sixth year as a school administrator and I am thrilled to join the Clark Community. Prior to Clark, I was privileged to work in Vista Unified School District. I told members of the interview panel the truth: that I was very happy in Vista and only interested in a position that I felt matched my interests, commitment, and passions. 

From my first moments in the interview to now, my impressions of Clark have remained consistent. Clark is a vibrant, thriving community with extremely dedicated educators and families. Working with Clark teachers, staff, and parents, it is highly evident how invested you are in the safety and success of our students. Members of our community have experience of what has worked to support our students in the past and a deep faith and vision for the opportunities we want to provide for our students’ futures.

My vision is for Clark to be known for high expectations and thorough supports for each and every student. My goal is for our decisions to be consistent with the following values:

  • An unwavering belief that all students can learn and it is our responsibility they do so.
  • A commitment to cultivating an environment that is physically and emotionally safe.

I am passionate about partnering with families and school communities. The work of preparing young people to be successful in our ever-changing world is rewarding, challenging, and cannot be done without your support. I look forward to the following upcoming events to get to know you more and discover how we can best work together for students.

 

I am proud of the investment and dedication I have seen at Clark so far and look forward to our future work together.

 

With respect and admiration,

Nicole Hendricks

Principal
