Mrs. Clancy
Have a great summer!

Best wishes, graduates!

Hi Everybody!

  • I teach Regents Chemistry, Regents Biology and Gemini Biology, a college credit course through FLCC (which alternates years with Forensics).
  • I am the MasterMinds (JV & Varsity) coach.  MasterMinds is an interscholastic academic competition in which opposing teams answer quiz questions in a college bowl or Jeopardy-type format.  We practice during lunch, but if that doesn't work, I loan out question sets for individual practice.
  • Academic Challenge Bowl is a similar club for 7th & 8th graders and has different questions and a slightly different format than the high school MasterMinds team.  They travel to other schools with the MasterMinds teams.  ACB practices with Mrs. Shepardson-Wood.

     Here's a little history about me.  I was born and raised in Maine, graduating from Greenville High School in1993.  I attended college at William Smith in Geneva, NY and graduated in 1997 with a B.S. in Chemistry and a minor in Biology.  While at college, I worked as an athletic trainer for the Hobart hockey team, other sports and summer camps.  I drove out West for graduate school at the University of Oregon in Eugene.  In 1998, I received a Master's degree in Exercise Physiology.  When I came back to Penn Yan, I temporarily worked as a teacher substitute.  I really enjoyed it, but needing something more permanent, I went to work in the hospitals in Penn Yan and Geneva as a lab tech and phlebotomist (drawing blood).  It was very interesting work, but I realized that I missed being around young people and intellectual challenges.

     In 2001, I left the hospital, got married and went to work at DeSales High School in Geneva (R.I.P. 1912-2012).  I taught Biology, Chemistry and Gemini Biology for 3 years.  In 2004, I went to Canandaigua Academy to teach Chemistry and then after having my first child, I wanted to be closer to home.  (I now have 2 children, Conor & Erin.)  I also wanted a small school where I could teach multiple subjects and so I could see students throughout their years. I LOVE my students - they are the BEST!
