Jennifer Clark was born in Idaho Falls, Idaho; however, she spent most of her school years in Nyssa, Oregon. Her family moved to Morgan right before the start of her senior year. After graduating from Morgan High School, she attended Brigham Young University for two years before serving a mission in Indiana, Indianapolis. After her mission, she attended Utah State University where she earned her bachelor’s degree in Home Economics and Consumer Education, with a minor in Nutrition.
Clark was a stay-at-home mom for 25 years before starting her teaching career at MHS teaching financial literacy (which is her favorite class to teach), Interior Design I and II and Foods and Nutrition I. She is now in her sixth year teaching, along with being the Family Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) advisor.
“I have always wanted to be a teacher,” Clark said. “When I was a child, I would pretend that I was a teacher instead of playing with dolls or other toys. My favorite part of teaching is associating with the great kids at Morgan High. I love teaching them skills that will help them be more successful in their everyday lives.”
Clark has been married to her husband Bruce, who is a Morgan native, for 33 years. They were introduced to each other through her father. Together they have six kids and one grandchild. Ethan, Ellissa, Hannah, Hailey, Cecily and Cholee. The Clarks operate the family dairy farm that has been in the Clark family for four generations.
In her spare time, Clark likes baking, gardening and traveling. She also likes to spend time with her family boating, playing games and playing pickleball.
