Welcome to the Spanish and Academic Enrichment Web Page! My name is Mrs. Smith, and this is my 20th year in education! My first 8 years in education were spent as a 4th grade classroom teacher in Atlantic Highlands. The following 2 years were spent teaching language arts to 3rd-6th grade students in a gifted education program, and piloting a Spanish program in a 3rd grade classroom.
After taking a few years off to raise my daughter, I returned to teaching in 2004 and took a one-year position as a 3rd grade gifted education teacher in Tinton Falls. The following year, I came to work in Oceanport as the K-4 Spanish and 3rd-4th grade Academic Enrichment teacher, and I have been here ever since!
Aside from teaching, I love reading, baking, gardening, boating, and spending time with my husband and daughter. I also love to travel and have visited Mexico, Belize, Honduras, Venezuela, Canda, England, France, and Italy!
