Hi! My name is Mrs. Tracie Clay and I teach 7th grade language arts.  I have taught at GMSW for 12 years.  I worked as a 6th grade intervention specialist, where I worked with students who had mild learning disabilities for my first 7 years at GMSW; then 4 years as a 6th grade general education teacher and this is my first year in 7th grade.  I have lived in Gahanna for almost 30 years and am married to Bryan Clay and have two children and both children graduated from GLHS.  My son, DJ,  is a 7th grade language arts teacher with me, here at GMSW, and my daughter, Chelsea, is a social worker for Directions for Youth and Family.   
 
I send out frequent emails with information regarding my homeroom and language arts classes.  If you have not updated our school office with your most current email address, please call them at 614-478-5570 to give them this information - or you can email me (clayt@gjps.org) with your information and I will pass it along.

Please note:  Only legal guardians' email addresses will show up on my email browser (it is called Teacher Access Center for me and Home Access Center for you) and be automatically included in my weekly emails.  If you are not a legal guardian, please email me your information and I will make sure I forward the mass email that is sent to all guardians of students in my classes.  If you have not signed up for Home Access Center to check your student's progress in his or her academic classes, please call the school office or let me know.
 
If you go to "Helpful Tips for Parents", you can access the letter I send home at the beginning of the year.  You may find additional information in this letter helpful, as well.
