My name is Stephanie Clayton.   I have been a Respiratory Therapist for 21 years and have decided to make the giant leap into teaching.   I have worked in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit most of my career, but now work at Ward Memorial Hospital when needed.  I am also the owner of Circle J Western Wear!

I am originally from Jal, NM.  I was born in Odessa and have lived in numerous places.   I graduated from New Mexico State University and Independence University. I have an Associates in Applied Science and a Bachelors in Health Care Administration.   I am also a licensed Insurance Agent. 

My Family has roots here!  I am married, to Bill Clayton.  I have six sons, and one daugther.   All of them have graduated from Monahans High School!   We have a small ranch and continue to add more animals.  Despite the three dogs and two cats, and a team of chickens! 

This is my fifth year teaching, and I am super excited and feel honored that you have provided me the opportunity to get to know and teach your precious cargo!
