Clarkdale Administration


Dr. Liss A. Maynard

Welcome to Clarkdale Elementary….where we are focused on teaching and learning every day! This year we have our very own Recipe for Success that was created from each entity of our school including parents and students. Each ingredient is important to the overall success of our dish…students who are college and career ready!  I am so proud of what we have accomplished together over the past three years; we will continue to achieve great heights as we strive towards becoming a National School of Excellence!  In order to reach this goal, we must work in partnership and commit to be engaged in our overall success!  My commitments to Clarkdale (and to each of you) are unwavering and I will continue to provide you with servant leadership throughout this journey.

I am looking forward to another year of awesomeness! Our Recipe for Success is sure to cook up heaping servings of success as we work together to prepare something wonderful!

I earned a bachelor’s degree in mathematics from Tuskegee University, a master’s degree from the University of Southern Mississippi, a specialist degree from the University of West Georgia and my Ph.D. from the University of Southern Mississippi.
