Hello! I grew up in Arcadia and even went to Highland Oaks. I knew she wanted to become a teacher early on when I began reading books to young children at the Arcadia Public Library during Freshman year of High School. I've taught Kindergarten and 2nd Grade, but I love 3rd grade the most. My husband, Brad Smith, also works in the district and we have two children, Jordan (sixth grade) and Sierra (fifth grade). We have a 5 year old Labrador Retriever named Boomer. My hobbies include cooking, crafting, and shopping.
