Bonjour!  My name is Stacy Clark and I'm the French teacher at Parkway High School.  I love French, I love teaching and I love teens, so this is my dream job.  This is my 34th  year teaching and my 19th year at Parkway.  I'm a  Yankee transplant, and I received my teaching training at Wake Forest University in North Carolina.  While there I studied in France for a semester and have returned there a number of times.  I look forward to seeing you in my classes soon!

My name is Michelle Gay and I teach Spanish I, II and Dual Credit at Parkway!  This is my 15th year teaching. I have my Spanish Licensure degree and a Master's of Arts in the Teaching of Languages from The University of Southern Mississippi. I have studied in both Mexico and Spain for my undergraduate and graduate degrees.   I am also a National Board Certified Teacher in Spanish. 

I love to travel and Spanish has taken me all over the world!  I've been on 72 mission trips to South America, Central America and Mexico.  Through these trips, I have fallen in love with the Spanish language and culture and am so excited to bring this to the classroom!  

My biggest accomplishment and greatest joy will always be my family; my husband, Gilbert, my daughter, Callie and my son, Beaux!  ¡La vida es buena!

My name is Ruth Johnson and I teach Spanish I and II at Parkway High School.  This is my second year as a Spanish teacher.  I am certified to teach Spanish in all levels (K-12).  I was born and raised in Mexico, and my goal is to bring my experience to the classroom and cultivate a love of culture.  

I love to travel and visit the many National Parks in the United States.  I strongly believe that the best way to learn is through experiences and moments.

My family and friends are a big part of my life, and through them, I have had the opportunity to live, love and laugh to the fullest.
