B.A. Elementary Education

Mr. Joseph Ficner

I joined the Clark family teaching 5th grade in the fall of 2017 after graduating from Saint Louis University with my B.A. in Elementary Education. I was born and raised in Chicago, IL where I was active in band, cross country, track and field, and the Boy Scouts of America, reaching the rank of Eagle Scout the summer before college. I visit often to see my mom, dad, sister, and a monster of a chocolate lab, Murphy. It's been an honor to teach within such a lovely community and whether it’s one of the many wonderful WGSD events or simply passing in the aisle at Schuncks, I hope to one day make your acquaintance.
