Clay has immeasurably enjoyed 24 years as an educator in Kentucky schools, which include Lexington, Danville, and now 14 years with JCPS. In JCPS, she taught in Primary and Intermediate classrooms at Jacob Elementary and Intermediate at Chenoweth. From the classroom, she moved into a staff developer position, serving Chenoweth Elementary teachers and students. In this capacity, she gained an appreciation for strong leadership and worked to develop a collaborative leadership style. Clay has also had the privilege of being the assistant principal at Chenoweth for more than three years. She states, “I have truly enjoyed my years serving the Chenoweth staff and families both as a faculty member and parent. I am thrilled to be a part of such a great institution in yet another capacity.”
