Hello, I'm Master Sergeant Aldrich E. Cleark. I'm the Junior Reserve officer Training Corps (JROTC) Senior Army Instructor at Sumner high school. I began teaching JROTC in 2006 after retiring from the Army after 25 years of service. I have an Education Specialist degree from Lindenwood Unversity and a Bachelors of Arts degree in Business Management from Columbia College.
I'm the leader of the STR8 Talk youngmens group here at the school. I'm amember of the American Legion and American Veterans Association. American Legion and America Veterans believe the ideas of America and supporting the communities they serve.
My educationa philosophy, I believe that students are responsible for their education and the teacher is the facilitator. I believe challenged students retain information more information at a faster rate and slowly began to enjoy learning. I believe in being strict and direct with my students to minimize distraction in the classroom and foster a culture of independent learners.
