Beth Clark

Beth Clark is the Pre-K3 Assistant teacher and has taught in the Lower School for more than 20 year. She considers it a privilege to be a part of each student’s introduction to Saint Gregory’s. She enjoys nurturing each child and maintaining those relationships as the students grow.

Mrs. Clark is one of nine children, born and raised in Albany. When she isn’t teaching, she spends time her parents and extended family. She also enjoys reading, yoga, baking, and being grandmother. A mother of three, Mrs. Clark’s youngest son is a Saint Gregory’s graduate.

“One of the most rewarding aspects of teaching at St Gregory’s has been the sense of community. It is a joy to not only get to know the students but also their families, and watch our students develop from toddlers into young adults.”
