A Message from the Principal
Hello! I'm Mrs. Clarke as the Principal of Dalton Elementary. It is my pleasure to welcome you to the Dalton Community.
As the oldest of four children, I began 'playing teacher' at a very young age. Once I met my third-grade teacher, I knew that I would be in education for the rest of my life. My third-grade teacher became what I aspired to be as an educator. She was the perfect blend of smart, caring, adventurous, focused and fun! I have been in education since 1992 and began working in the Azusa Unified School District in 1995. I received my B.A. from Azusa Pacific University, M.A. from Cal Poly Pomona, Multiple Subject Credential from APU, and Special Education credential from Cal Poly Pomona. In addition, I received an Autism Authorization from the Los Angeles County Office of Education and Administrative Credentials from the University of LaVerne Cal State Long Beach.
In my spare time, I enjoy road cycling, camping, hiking, traveling, and scrapbooking. My husband and I love spending time with our nieces and nephews and taking them on adventures.
It is my honor and privilege to serve the community of Azusa. I moved to Azusa in 1989 and have either lived or worked here ever since. I love this community, and I am dedicated to the success of Azusa students.
