• Welcome!


    Hello! My name is Miss Smith and I am very excited to be your 5th grade teacher for the 2019-2020 school year! I am grateful for this opportunity and am looking forward to getting to know more about you and starting the year together!


    I was born in Richmond and have spent most of my life in Glen Allen, Virginia. I grew up with an older brother and spent many days exploring the creek near my house. I absolutely loved my elementary school years and loved going to school everyday! This is where my passion for math and science started. I would even ask for extra math homework problems to do. (How many of you would do that?!) Outside of school I did gymnastics, cheerleading and traveled with family. 


    I graduated from Washington and Lee University with a Bachelor's degree in Mathematics and a minor in Education. You could say that I LOVE math and am excited to share my passion with you. This year marks my third year at Countryside Elementary School and I am thrilled to be back with awesome students and a great 5th grade team!


    Currently, my new favorite hobby is watching Netflix with my dog, Mya, and cat, Lexi, by my side! You will probably always see dog or cat fur on my clothes this year. I also enjoy hiking and reading a good book.
