About Mrs. Smith...
Position: First Grade Teacher
Welcome! I was born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona. I absolutely love everything about the desert, even the 110 degree weather! I have five adorable weiner dogs that are like my kiddos. Their names are Winston, Otis, Sadie, Mabel, and Rigby. In my free time I enjoy working out at Orange Theory Fitness, try new restuarants, and spend time with husband and kids. I am looking forward to a great year!
My Education and Professional Background
I attended Arizona State University for my undergraduate in Elementary Education. I also have an endorsement in Early Childhood Education. I began my teaching career in 2017 and am excited about what the future holds. It is truly amazing the amount of content our kiddos are able to retain and learn upon.
My Educational Philosophy
At Rice Elementary, we are preparing all students with the academic and social skills necessary to pursue any dream.
