Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Laura Clay
Welcome to second grade!
My name is Laura Clay, and I'm excited to be your child's 2nd grade teacher. I have a Bachelor's Degrees in Elementary Education from the University of Southern Mississippi and Master's Degree in Education from William Carey Universtiy. When I am not busy lesson planning or working in the classroom, you can find me spending quality time with my amazing family.
I anticipate a very busy and enriching year with your child. In second grade, you will see an emphasis in reading, writing, and math. You will be amazed at the progress you will see throughout the year. I have high expectations for all my students, and I hope that you will encourage your child at home by participating in all take-home activities (i.e. homework, family activities, projects, etc.). I highly encourage parental involvement, as it enhances your child's educational experience and keeps you well informed to the goings-on in the classroom. You can expect open communication and understanding from me. As always, I am willing to assist you with all of your educational concerns.
Feel free to contact me anytime:
Laura.Clay@gulfportschools.org or by calling the school @ 228.865.4625. I will respond at my earliest convenience. You may also put any correspondence to me in your child's binder.
Thank you, and let's make it a fabulous second grade year.
