About Mrs. Klay

Welcome! I was born in Phoenix, but raised in the Hudson Valley region of New York. About 8 years ago, my husband, daughter and I made the cross-country move to Tempe, AZ. From Tempe, we moved into the Deer Valley district and absolutely love being a part of this community. Some of our favorite family-fun times include swimming and going for walks.  

I am excited to be teaching at Union Park and hope to use my background to inspire lifelong learning in our students. Early on, I obtained a bachelors in Psychology and a masters in Humanistic/Multiculturalism, each from SUNY New Paltz in New York. I also have a masters degree in Special Education, with SEI endorsement, from Grand Canyon University. Cheers, to a great year ahead!
