Mrs. Florence Clark


I have been teaching 8th grade Literature since 2002 (subbing for most of 3 years and coming on full-time in 2005).  Prior to that I subbed in all buildings in the district.  I love when students get so involved in the story they wonder what happens next.  My goal is to improve reading comprehension through connecting to stories. 

I began my career in the Labor Relations field after earning a Bachelor's in Labor Relations and a Master's in Legal Studies.  While working for a state-wide police union, a job I did really love, I realized that I really wanted to teach.  I quit my job and went back to school to become a teacher.  I am certified K - 9. with endorsements to teach Middle School, Language/Lit, Social Studies, and Math.  In addition to my Bachelor's in Labor Relations and Master's in Legal Studies, I have an Associate's in Accounting and an Associate in Applied Science in Computers.  I attended Lincoln Land and Sangamon State/University of Illinois Springfield.

 If you need to speak with me, my plan period is 8th hour.  You can call, or make an appointment to see me, between 2:10-2:40.  

A little about myself:  I was born in DuQuoin, IL.  My family lived in Dowell, IL.  We moved to Hillsboro just after my 1st birthday so Hillsboro is my hometown.  I went through Beckemeyer, HJHS, and HHS.  I am a proud Bulldog/Dragon/Topper.  I go to Calvary Baptist Church where I am the coach of the Bible Quiz team for 6th - 12th grades (and jr. quizzers 4th - 5th grades), teach birth through 1st grade Sunday School, and am the director of the Wednesday evening kids and youth programs/youth leader. I also volunteer with Paws Care where I am the President.  I got married on June 26, 2021, and shortened my name from Rozmislowicz to Clark.  I gained two step-children and a daughter-in-law.  We welcomed our first grandchild, Everett, on September 15, 2021.  We couldn't be more excited!  He is absolutely perfect.  I have 2 cats, Fox and Buttercup.
