Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to Mrs. Smith's AIG website. I have been a teacher in Cabarrus County Schools for 13 years. I have taught 1st grade, 2nd grade, 3rd grade and AIG. I have taught AIG for the last 6 years. This is my sixth year at Coltrane-Webb S.T.E.M. Elementary School. I am at Coltrane-Webb 4 days this year. I attended UNC-Charlotte and received my elementary education certification. I added on my AIG licensure from UNC-Pembroke. I am Nationally Board Certified in the area of Early Childhood Generalist. My husband is also a teacher in Cabarrus County Schools. We have an eight year old son, and a five year old daughter who bless us daily. I look forward to working with the students at Coltrane-Webb this year and working to cultivate potential in 1st and 2nd grades this year in our L.I.F.T. (learning interventions for the talented) program. If you need to contact me please send me an email at email@example.com since I am not at Coltrane every day.
