Special Education Teacher
Alexandria Clay is a special education teacher at Maine Connections Academy (MCA). She holds a bachelor’s degree in music education from the University of Maine at Augusta and a master’s degree in special education from the University of Maine, Farmington. Ms. Clay began teaching special education at MCA in 2016. She shares more about herself below.
“I enjoy working with students and recall how tough it can be,” said Ms. Bryson. “I want to be the teacher that I needed when I was a student. I hope that I will encourage each one to excel in his or her gifts and to improve where they have challenges. I have been a special education teacher for nine years. Prior to teaching, I worked in many other settings, such as driving a pallet truck for Walmart, as a sales representative, and as the owner of a cleaning business so that I could go back to college to become a teacher.
“I wanted to become a teacher ever since I was young because every child learns differently and I have always wanted to help others learn. I love being a part of MCA because online schooling is an eccentric way of learning instruction, and the people I work with are so helpful and amazing! It is fascinating to see how far education has come.”
