MAT Elementary Education Room 121
Hello everyone!!! Welcome to 3rd Grade!
I am SO excited to be your student's teacher this year! I truly believe that education is a partnership between the teacher and parent and I look forward to working with you. Here is a little information about me for you to know.
I received my Bachelor of Science degree at East Carolina University in Recreation and Leisure Systems Studies with a Concentration in Recreation Therapy. I worked in this field for 15 years before becoming a stay at home Mom for my two kiddos Sandy and Connor. After six years of being a stay at home Mom, I decided to pursue my dream job of becoming a teacher. I received my Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) in Elementary Education from the University of North Carolina Wilmington in 2014. This will be my eighth year teaching and I absolutely LOVE it!
I have been married for 20 years to Steven Smith. We have built our life in Topsail Beach with two beautiful children, a Lab-Coonhound mix named Indy, and a rescue kitty from Sneads Ferry named Belle. My daughter Sandy is in 9th grade and my son Connor is in 6th grade.
This is going to be a GREAT year for us all! I am honored to be part of the Coeastal Elementary Family and can not wait to begin many new adventures together this year!
