Ms. Smith is so, so excited to work with the 7th grade Math, 8th grade Algebra I, and 6th grade Keyboarding students at St. Bernard Middle this year! Ms. Smith firmly believes in the power of a strong math education and she cannot wait to spend this year making sure her students develop the mathematical and critical thinking skills they will need to succeed both in school and in their futures. A positive learning environment is a priority for Ms. Smith and her classroom will always be a space where students feel safe to learn and grow.
Before coming to St. Bernard Middle, Ms. Smith earned her B.A. in International Studies and Religion from Middlebury College in Vermont. She then spent time teaching in Atlanta, Georgia and Rutland, Vermont public schools before finally making the big move down to Louisiana- a move she has been wanting to make ever since her first visit (and first beignet) in 2013. Although Ms. Smith is looking forward to so much of what's to come this year, she is definitely most excited about getting to know more about her students, their families, and the greater St. Bernard community.
Outside of school, Ms. Smith loves to spend time with her family and friends, watch the Red Sox win, play her flute, ski whenever she can find snow, and do math.
