I got the chance to work with this amazing lady, creating an updated picture for her in her home in Carefree.  It is people like her that make my work worthwhile!

Nancy Clarke has had a career in teaching and education for over 57 years!  She has worked as a school principal and Assistant Superintendent for CCUSD, teaching pre-school through college students and consulting for a research project for Iowa State University, the AZ department of Education, and AZ Charter Schools.

After 54 years of marriage, her husband, Ron, passed after a series of illnesses.  Since that time, she knew she needed to move forward in a positive and productive way.

In 2017 Nancy decided to retire from teaching and education, and found that other activities needed attention in her life, like her Grandchildren, great Granddaughter, and giving back to the community.  She currently spends time traveling to visit her three children, and their families.  Church life and community service has been a life long goal as well.

This beautiful lady is truly amazing, inside and out!  Not to mention, she has the most amazing views from her home!  I feel so blessed to have met her, and people just like her, living in Carefree, AZ.
