Hello! My name is Mrs. Smith and I have been teaching in K-8 grades for over 18 years. I have taught both in private and public schools and have been with Folsom Cordova Unified for 14 years. I love teaching eager students and look forward to my 5th year here at Blanche Sprentz Elementary School. After a year of distance learning I can't wait to be back in the classroom every day with my kids.
I have a great family which includes my husband Matt, our daughter Natalie who is married and is a doctor in Alabama, and our son Jeff who is a mechanical engineer in Seattle, Washington. So yes, that pretty much means I am an empty nester, but I'm glad I am going to have a full class of 4th graders to be my additional kids :) My students will most certainly be getting stories about my family, and the crazy fun adventures we like to go on.
In my spare time I love to go out on the boat, tandem bike ride with my hubby, go see a movie, and read and relax. Every once in a while I like to cook something really special. I love to travel and just this summer got to spend some time in Kauai! My love for the Hawaiian islands is the inspiration for our "Life is Sweet" theme in our classroom. Bring on the tropics, sun, the beach, pineapple, and palm trees!
I'm looking forward to a great year here and getting to know all my students and meeting their families. See you soon!
