My Name is Elizabeth Smith. I am thrilled to be teaching 5th grade at Ramsey Science Magnet School. This is my second year of teaching. Previously I've worked with children for the past 15 years in the mental health field. I am looking forward to combining my knowledge to enhance my teaching and promote not only academic intelligence, but emotional intelligence, as well.
I am married to a wonderful man, Josh, and we have twin boys that are entering 2nd grade at Sorensen Elementary, Asher and Landon. When outside of school, we are always out exploring the mountains, lakes, forests, and any other activity that North Idaho has to offer as a family. I find the mountains and the water to be my happy place.
In my class, all students will have high, consistent, individualized expectations based on Idaho State Standards. These standards promote higher level thinking and questioning which will be enhanced through hands on explorations. There will be clear and concise expectations stately daily. The classroom will be a safe and engaging place for each student to excell and continue to grow daily.
If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to call or email.
I look forward to working in combination with parents to promote growth in each and every student!
