Meet Ms. Smith

About Ms. Smith

 I grew up in Bloomington, Minnesota and graduated from Academy of Holy Angels in Richfield.  After high school, I attended Southwest Minnesota State University in Marshall and received my bachelor's degree in Literature and History.  In addition, I obtained a 7-12 licensure in Language Arts and Social Studies education.

This is my seventh year teaching English at Lester Prairie School, but I have taught for 22 years.  I have a diverse background in education, having taught middle school/high school English and Social Studies in Wisconsin, Arizona, and Minnesota. I have also tutored students with ACT preparation, writing, study skills, and even directed a play or two. 

I enjoy spending time with my family, baking delicious sweets, traveling across the country, and playing with my pup, Oscar.  I love to read, and I'm excited to share that passion with my students.  It has been a year of growth and continual learning, and I feel blessed to teach at Lester Prairie School.
