This is my 24th year at R.E. Thompson. I have taught every grade at this school, and I have worked as the reading intervention teacher for the last 5 years. This year I will be the ARI Reading Specialist at our school. I am also the director of our after-school program. I love R.E.Thompson and Tuscumbia! GO TIGERS!
I am a 1994 graduate of Deshler High School. I am married to Blake Smith. We have one daughter, Bess, who is 21 years old and a senior at the University of Alabama. Roll Tide! We have one dog, Remi. I enjoy going on trips, surfing the Internet, and football (especially Deshler and Alabama)!
