Ms. Clay


My name is Kirsty Clay and I am a first grade teacher at Trent Park Elementary. 

I was born and raised in Roanoke Rapids, North Carolina. I made the decision to call New Bern my new home in 2015 after visiting and I absolutely love it here! I graduated from East Carolina University with my Bachelors in Elementary Education (K-6) with a reading concentration. While attending college, I worked as a supervisor at Starbucks, and later as a Kindergarten and 1st grade teacher assistant. Upon graduation, I taught 2nd grade but this will be my first year teaching 1st.
