Jonathan Clarke

6th Grade

Meet

Mr. Jonathan

My name is Jonathan Clarke and I am excited to be part of  the 6th grade Crew at Renaissance Expeditionary Magnet School.  I love the sense of community at REMS, the focus on teaching the whole child, and partnering with your family.  I have been in the Douglas County School District as an educator since December 2017. As of August 2024 I have moved from 5th grade to 6th grade. It’s a cool experience to loop up and I look forward to working with the 5th graders again!


A little background about me: 

  1. I am from New Jersey/Pennsylvania

  2. I spent 15 years running track and field (High School/College/ Pro)

  3. I have indeed jumped over my car (I also might have jumped over your student this past school year)

  4. I coach track and field at Ponderosa High School

  5. I spent 6.5 years as an EA in a Severe Emotional Disorder program prior to becoming a teacher

  6. My reason for becoming a teacher is simply to be the teacher I never had. To be able to impact and educate as many students as I can. I aspire to be a teacher who can create hands-on learning experiences and develop a love of learning in my students. One of my goals is to create a classroom community where all students feel welcomed and involved.


In my free time, I enjoy spending time in the gym, reading books, playing video games, volunteering my time at my church, and spending time with my family.
