Greetings Parents and Students,
My name is Shandrica N. Smith, and I am a product of Birmingham City Schools. This is my 13th year teaching, and I am always ready for a challenge! I am a graduate of Miles College. I completed my internship at Central Park Elementary School, and I have taught fourth grade for nine years. I have always believed that teaching is one of the most honorable professions, and teaching is truly my passion. My goal is to continue to empower my students with the power of education, and to nurture their joy of learning. What rich reward to see each student reach or exceed his/her potential! Children will live up to our expectations of them if we teach them how to meet those expectations. This is where responsibility, determination, and motivation come into play in the student's life. I also believe that education and learning to explore the world extends far beyond the walls of the school, and into the everyday lives of children at home. I have dedicated myself to educating children, and instilling in each child a true love for learning.
"Each child is a unique individual who needs a secure, caring, and stimulating environment in which to grow and mature emotionally, intellectually, physically, and socially."
