Ms. Celia Clay
Welcome! My name is Ms. Clay and 2018 - 2019 is my tenth (10th) year teaching at Pearland High School (PHS)!
At PHS, I teach in the Career and Technology Education (CTE) Department in the Allied Health Sciences pathway. During 2018 - 2019, I am teaching the following courses: Health Science Theory with Clinical Rotations, Health Science Theory, World Health Research and Medical Terminology.
During my teaching career, I have had the pleasure to teach high school, middle school, community college/ adult high school, university undergraduate and graduate students, teachers and adult medical, Public Health and Emergency Management professional students!! In addition to a teaching career, I spent twenty-four years in a full-time civilian career as an Infectious Diseases Surveillance Epidemiologist at the local, state and national levels.
As a native Texan, I attended Houston's University of St. Thomas for my undergraduate B. A. degree in Secondary Education with teaching fields in Biology and English. Following my B.A., I fulfilled a childhood dream and worked as a medical volunteer for a year in Rwanda, Africa. I returned to the USA and completed a Masters Degree in Public Health (foci: Community Health and Epidemiology) through the University of Texas School of Public Health. I also have a national certification, through the Texas A&M system as a Certified Training Professional (CTP) with skills in adult training as well as Curriculum and Instruction design.
Following the MPH graduate degree, I received a direct commission into reserve military service as a Public Health Officer. I completed both Reserve Medical Officer School and Public Health Officer graduate training (US Air Force School of Aerospace Medicine; foci: Aerospace Medicine/ Occupational Medicine and Infectious Diseases). Military certifications included Medical Readiness Officer and (Reserve) Infection Control certifications.
To date, I have completed multiple post-graduate courses through the military and civilian pathways. During summer 2017, PHS colleagues and I completed the MD Anderson AHEARN program certification from the MD Anderson School of Health Professions in the nearby Texas Medical Center (TMC).
Parents and students who would like to reach me at PHS are welcome to e-mail me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
