Ms. Smith has 24 years of teaching experience, all with DoDEA schools on Fort Stewart, GA. She has taught 1st through 6th grade students in reading and math at both Diamond and Kessler Elementary Schools. She received her Bachelor's and Master's of Science Degrees in Early Childhood Education from Georgia Southern University.

Ms. Smith believes that, "teaching is a profession that is heaped with responsibilities and challenges, those who love it do not want to be anywhere else but with a group of children." She also believes that success in the classroom is founded in the teacher's acknowledgement of the individuality of each student. "I acknowledge and embrace the diversity of children and recognize that ultimately it is my job to ensure that learning is taking place. I guide students as they become equipped to be successful citizens of tomorrow."
