after studying elementary education at the mount, clarke hooper, c'19, is currently teaching students at north frederick elementary school in the frederick county public schools system.
it’s a close-knit community that allowed me to strengthen my faith and my academics while fulfilling my love for track and field.
everyone is entitled to master the one thing that cannot be taken away from them—an education. i want to empower children to fall in love with learning and see it as a gift, not a requirement.
i was involved in cross-country and track and field. (i started running in middle school.) i was also an orientation co-director and a resident assistant. i love leading others, being involved and challenging myself to become a better version than i was yesterday.
i have had the opportunity to have in-field experience and learn alongside professionals. i have been blessed with the opportunity to work in the same school system where i learned during my student teaching.
i will live the life destined for me by god. i will do this by loving everyone. i will work with intentionality in everything that i do—ensuring that everyone feels valued, important and loved like i have had the privilege of feeling all four of my years at the mount.
