• Welcome to 1st Grade!  


    Hello!  My name is Lauren Smith and I am looking forward to getting to know your child this year!  I am a Virginia Tech Graduate - Go HOKIES!  I then received my Master's of Teaching from Virginia Commonwealth University in 1998.  This is my 21st year teaching but my 1st year at Cool Spring Elementary.  Before moving to Leesburg, I taught Kindergarten and 1st Grade in both Richmond City Schools and in Chesterfield County Schools.  

    My family recently moved to Leesburg from Moseley, VA.  My husband and I have 2 children, Taylor (10) and Cole (8) who keep us very busy.   We are so excited to be Cool Spring Penguins!  In my 'spare' time I love to read, craft and go camping with my family.
