About Mrs. Clay
Welcome! This year I will be the Homeroom Teacher for 8B.
My goal is to find fun, innovative ways to teach all my students to think critically, communicate
effectively, and act responsibly.
This is my fourth year teaching middle school History and English at St. Patrick. Previously, I taught at Holy Family of Nazareth Catholic School in Irving, Texas; Dewitt Perry Middle School in Carrollton-Farmers Branch ISD, Carrollton, Texas; and Cedar Park Middle School in Leander ISD, Cedar Park, Texas.
I was raised in Richardson and went to St. Paul the Apostle Catholic School through 8th grade. After graduating from Bishop Lynch High School, I attended the University of Texas at Austin where I became a life-long Longhorn fan and graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Education. Hook 'Em!
We love being part of the St. Patrick's community! My oldest daughter attends Bishop Lynch, and I have a daughter in 8th grade and a son in 4th grade.
When I am not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my family,reading historical fiction and mysteries, and traveling. In 2010, my family and I traveled across the United States, visiting 48 states in 12 months. I hope to bring some of the things I learned about our great nation to my classes.
