• Welcome!

    Ms. Smith
       Thank you so much for taking the time to visit!
     
    Here is some fun information about me:
    • I am so excited to teach Fourth Grade this year! 
    • One of my favorite things about being a teacher at Dewey is the diversity of cultures and languages.  In our class this year we have 8 students whose first language is not English.  I love watching children from different backgrounds become friends and help each other learn.
    • I also love animals.  I currently have a seven-year-old lab mix puppy named Cali, and a bearded dragon named Flash who is part of our classroom!
    • I grew up in St. Louis and went to school at the University of Missouri-Columbia.  I earned both my undergraduate and masters degrees there.  My bachelor's degrees are in early childhood and elementary education, and my master's is in curriculum and instruction. 
    • I have a wonderful husband named Tony.  We have been married for 7 years.  This summer our son, Evan, just celebrated his 6th birthday and our daughter, Ava, will be 2 in October.
    • I love coffee, colored pens, dark chocolate, bubble baths, musicals, and books!
    • I truly want parents to be involved in our classroom community.  Please join our class page on the Bloomz app to receive up-to-date information as well as view photos of your child learning throughout the year.
     
    I am looking forward to a great year, and I am so glad you get to be a part of it!
