Welcome to Ms. Smythe’s class for 2015/2016 school year.

A little about me:

I have lived in Arizona for 4 years now, I am a New Mexican native. I have my Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education from the University of New Mexico, my Master’s degree in Special Education with a minor in Educational Diagnostics, and am currently working on my Doctorate degree in Psychology; Cognition and Instruction through Grand Canyon University.

I am new to the American Leadership Academy, but this will be my 9th year teaching. I have previously taught 4 years in New Mexico as a Gifted Resource teacher, 2 years as a District Gifted Coordinator/Teacher, and 2 years as a Self-Contained Gifted Teacher.

This school year:

I am anticipating this school year to be a great school year, as 4th grade has an awesome teaching team to nurture our students and help them grow both academically and socially.
