Principal Eric Higgins is ecstatic to be a Clark Cougar!
The 2022/23 school year will be his 4th year as principal at Clark Montessori. Principal Higgins brings more than two decades of experience in education to the Clark community, including ten years as a middle school teacher, four years as a high school athletic director, and nine years as an assistant principal in the CPS district.
In December of 2022, Principal Higgins will complete his Montessori administration credential. The Montessori philosophy includes core aspects of independence and community - both of which are also important to Principal Higgins. He is honored to support Clark students in finding their own place in society, whatever that might be, through the many opportunities that Clark Montessori offers for exploration of real world activities. To Principal Higgins, it’s not just about learning objectives and state scores - it is that and so much more. It is nurturing valorization and providing the whole child education.
Principal Higgins is a basketball and volleyball referee in his spare time; he likes to travel and is a big fan of roller coasters!
