Principal's Message

Matt Roer
Welcome to Clark Elementary

I am very excited and honored to be the principal of Clark Elementary School. I am looking forward to working with the students and staff in the building and making sure that we are providing the students with the best education possible. I am committed to making sure that the students receive a solid educational foundation in which they can build on for their entire educational experience. Parental support and involvement is crucial to the success of every student, so I am looking forward to building those relationships with you while your child is attending our school. If you have any questions or concerns at any time, please feel free to contact me directly at 815-389-2311.

I started my career in education as a paraprofessional at Clark Elementary School during the 2011-2012 school year. I was able to attain a position the following school year at South Beloit Junior High School where I taught 8th grade English, 8th grade Social Studies, and 7th/8th grade Physical Education for four years. From there, I served as the Assistant Principal at Stephen Mack Middle School in Rockton, IL for three years. This is my fourth year as the building principal at Clark Elementary School. I am very grateful for the experiences I have had at all of my stops along the way, and I feel that they have prepared me for this opportunity to serve as your child's principal!
