Hello, my name is Mrs. Lisa Smith and I’m excited to welcome you to our classroom. This is my 18th year teaching, my experience includes the following grades: 3rd, 4th, 5th, 8th, and 9th – 12th Reading EIP. However, my heart belongs to elementary. I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Elementary Education from Florida Atlantic University, a Master of Education in Reading degree from Florida Gulf Coast University, and currently working towards a Specialist Degree in education. I grew up in sunny Clewiston, Florida (near West Palm Beach) and I love to go home to visit family and friends often. I am married to my high school sweetheart, who is also a teacher, and we have two children, a daughter who is a junior at Kennesaw State University and a son who is a freshman at Northside High. Prior to becoming a teacher, I trained as a nurse and I currently practice nursing at a local rehabilitation center two weekends a month and during school/holiday breaks. I also enjoy spending time with family/friends and watching the Glamorous Golden Girls.
