Hello My Name Is...

Joe Clements

 

Hello students and parents! I have been an English teacher at every level from junior high to college and I have taught English for seven years at THS. My room number is 307, which is on the far north side of the school just below the hills/open space. This year I teach Freshmen, Juniors and Seniors. I hold a B.S. in English and Secondary Education from Northern Michigan University and a Master's of Fine Arts (Writing) from the Univ. of Michigan. (GO BLUE!) I also co-sponsor the Outdoors Club at THS and teach SAT preparation classes.

My wife and I have three children, the eldest of which graduated from THS in 2008 and is an NAU grad now. My oldest son (an Eagle Scout) graduated from THS in 2010 and I have one more son who's currently a freshman, so my committment to the school and community is personal as well as professional. I'm active in local B.S.A.Troop 323 and Venture Crew 2323. I look forward to working with all students and parents and you may call me at the following number: 623.915.8900, ext. 7137. To reach me directly, you might want to call either before school (7:30-8:00) or after school from 1:35 to at least 3:30 (usually 4:15 or so.) This year I have a 7th hour planning period, which means that you can usually call me directly after 1:35 and of course I return messages within 24 hours. I welcome your questions and look forward to partnering with you in a successful year. Thank you for your time and interest.
