Who is Mrs. Smith  

    I began my teaching career in the Philadelphia School District after graduating from Temple University with a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education in 2001. In addition, I have a Master's of Education in School Counseling from Wilmington University.

 

    Over the last seventeen years as a teacher, I have taught 4th, 5th, and 6th grade and almost every subject.  During the last twelve years, I focused mainly on English and Language Arts.  In recent years, I won Teacher of the Year, mentored new teachers, designed curriculum, facilitated professional development, and piloted new programs.  My greatest strength is classroom management.  I value building strong relationships with my students and their families.  I am looking forward to getting to know your family this year.  

 

   On a personal note, I grew up in Philadelphia, but I currently live in Woodstown.  I live with my husband, my fifteen year old son, Dominic, a delightfully evil cat named Primrose, a bearded dragon named Dart, and a very chubby bulldog named Brutus.  I am an avid reader.  One of my many goals is to spread my obsession of reading to ALL of my students.  I want your children to remember me with a smile on my face handing them the book that will have a part in shaping who they become in the future.
