Mrs. Michelle Clay

Hi! My name is Mrs. Clay and I am thrilled to be a part of the Smiths Station High School family! I am married to Michael Clay, who is a retired firefighter that now teaches a CTE class here at SSHS, and we have two children Case and Kolbie who attend West Smiths Station Elementary.  My husband is an almuni of SSHS and we love raising our kids in this town and having our children attend Smiths Station schools. I grew up in Cincinnati, OH and moved to this area when I attended Auburn University, War Eagle! I have a Bachelor's Degree in Communications and a Master's Degree in English Language Arts Education. What I love most about teaching English is that I get to learn so many interesting things about your children through their writing and through listening to their thoughts about a text or a book. I also love sports, so you will often see me at Smiths Station sporting events, or at the youth ball fields cheering on my own children.  I am the head Varisty Volleyball and Varsity Tennis coach.  Go panthers!
