About the Teacher…
I have lived in New Meadows all my life. I am a fifth generation resident. I have been teaching first grade for twelve years and am now teaching a first/second grade combo class and love it! I attended Meadows Valley from K-12 and am starting my 29th year working in the district. In September of 2015 I earned my Master’s Degree in Curriculum and Instruction with an emphasis in Reading. I received my teaching degree from Lewis-Clark State College in Lewiston, Idaho. I am married to a wonderful man named Randy and we have been married for 28 years. We have three wonderful children. LeAndra graduated from Lewis-Clark State College with a degree in Criminal Justice. She is working as a Fish Culturist at Hagerman State Fish Hatchery. Randi Leigh graduated from Lewis-Clark State College with a degree in Sport Administration and Business with presidential honors. She is working as a Dual Credit Coordinator at College of Western Idaho. Cody is a senior at University of Idaho working on a degree in Wildlife/Fisheries Resources. There is no other place I would rather be working. I love it here at school and in Meadows Valley. Life is spectacular!
What’s happening in Class?
Welcome to November 2018! This will be a quick month to work in learning. We will be doing Thanksgiving activities and learning about Nutrition. The Food Guide Pyramid and sections of the pyramid will be a focus this month. Students will learn portions and servings so they can help out at home for meals. We have the whole week of Thanksgiving off this year. I sure hope you all get to spend some quality time with your families. I know I will!! Thanks for all you do and have a novel November!!
Love, Mrs. Smith
