Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to Mrs. Smith's AIG website. I have been a teacher in Cabarrus County Schools for 14 years. I have taught 1st grade, 2nd grade, 3rd grade and AIG. I have taught AIG for the last 8 years. This is my seventh year at Coltrane-Webb S.T.E.M. Elementary School. 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 nine 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.
