Mrs. Smith is our new 5th grade teacher. She grew up in Redmond, Utah and went to Salina Elementary School. Her favorite place to go on vacation is anywhere that has a beach. She loves the sun and listening to the waves. The thing that makes her laugh the most is her family and kids. She says her kids are so funny, but they didn’t get that from her. They are so goofy and bring her so much joy. Her greatest accomplishment is completing her Masters of Education degree in one year while working full time and being a single mom. She says it was tough, but so worth it. Lastly, one thing most people do not know about her is that she loves going to the Salt Lake Comic Convention to meet celebrities and authors. She never thought she’d like it, but she was hooked after her first visit.
