Mrs. Heather Smith
Hi! I am excited to be returning to the fifth grade team. I have 19 years of experience in education. I have taught Spanish, 5th grade, 2nd grade, 4 grade and most recently 3rd grade. I have also spent 4 years working as an intervention teacher in reading and as a literacy coach.
I live with my husband (Aaron), step-daughter (Alex), and neice (Brittany). Not to mention our dog, Milani, and cat, Buddy. Alex is a new graduate from Mankato State, living at home finding her path. Brittany is a sophomore at Syracuse University in upstate NY. She is majoring in nutrition services and international relations. We love the outdoors. You will find our family camping, fishing, hiking, cross-country skiing, or just playing outside whenever possible. I spend my spare time watching Wild hockey with Aaron, or gardening in the yard. My early morning time is spent walking Milani before starting my day.
Fifth grade is an exciting year! So many opportunities await you and your child this year. I can't wait to share the journey with you!
