• I am happy to be here as a part of the Wesley Lakes Elementary Family.  My name is Mrs. Smith, one of the Exceptional Student Educators.  I have been working as a special needs educator for 19 years.  I have worked with students from Kindergarten to 8th grade.  This 20-21 school year I will be working with Kindergarten, 1st Grade, and 2nd Grade students collaboratively in the general classroom and in a small group setting.  I love working with students are learning new skills in reading, writing, and math.  I love seeing when your child makes that AWESOME discovery and overcome challenges.

    Here are a few things about me:

    I am a mom myself with a Kindergarten student.  I know the challenges of working and teaching your own children at the same time.  I just want to say I greatly appreciate all of your help. 

    I have currently 5 dogs in the house since my father is living with us and he has his dog as well.  If you do the math that means I own four of the dogs. 

    I love to travel but since COVID-19 that has not been possible.  I have been to several destinations around the world.  I love to go on cruises with my family.
