My name is Amber Clark, and I am so happy to be starting my 22nd year teaching Kindergarten at Christ the King! I am originally from the Midwest and graduated from the University of Iowa with a degree in Child Psychology. Before finding my dream job here, I was a pre-K teacher and then Director of a private pre-school in Plano. I always knew that I wanted to work with young children and I love the fact that I get to come to work every day and teach these precious minds something new about the world. I still remember standing in front of my first Kindergarten class teaching phonics when a child yelled out, "I get it" and began to sound out a word! Nothing in the world can prepare you for that kind of satisfaction, needless to say, I cried up a storm that day.
Many families at Christ the King still refer to me as Mrs. Voy since I originally used my maiden name when teaching, but when my daughter Katherine was born 14 years ago we thought a change was overdue. These days my life outside of school is spent running after a very active and independent teenager, and trying to get in a few moments of peace when I can read a good book! I look forward to meeting many new faces at Christ the King this year and in watching all of my former students blossom into very capable and caring individuals.
