Kristy Smith - 7th Math Teacher
This is Mrs. Smith's 32nd year in education! She has been a classroom teacher (pre-AP and level, 6th grade through seniors); Algebra district team leader; national consultant (worked with teachers and administrators in 17 states to improve math instruction and increase student achievement); district curriculum specialist; campus math interventionist; certified Master Mathematics teacher and a curriculum writer for UT Dana Center.
Mrs. Smith holds her BS from Texas A&M University and her MS from Stephen F. Austin.
She is thrilled to be working in a place that values relationships - the connections between students, teachers and learning. She is looking forward to working with her students, learning about their talents and interests and using that knowledge to explore the world of mathematics. After all, math is simply the study of relationships - the patterns that exist between the people, events and things in our world! Exciting stuff!
Mrs. Smith truly believes "all means all", that ALL students can learn mathematics given the opportunity to explore in a manner that works best for them. She looks forward to working with students to help them find their mathematical "zone" and use that knowledge to open doors to new and exciting pathways of learning.
Outside of work she enjoys traveling (she LOVES road trips and only needs 3 more states to have visited all 50!), novice foodie and she can't wait to explore this area (already loves 600 degrees pizza!!) and she loves theater! She is the proud mom of 2 sons and 2 daughter-in-laws. Making family memories is one of her favorite pastimes.
