I was a fourth grade teacher at Piedmont Elementary for seven years (2007-2014) before transferring to Rush Strong. This will be my fourth year teaching science and social studies at Rush Strong.


I am married to Michael Smith.  I have a daughter, Sadie, and a step-son, Liam.  Sadie is in eighth grade at RSS this year. Liam is in sixth grade and attends Halls Middle. During my free time I enjoy hiking, going to the beach, and spending quality time with my family. My family and I attend Faith Promise Church in North Knoxville.  I have four dogs named Duke, Toby, Max, and Katie, one cat named Yin-Yang, one baby goat named Peanut, one pet rabbit named Harley, and six chickens.
