Mrs. Shane Smith

     Hi!  Welcome to Hickory Ridge Elementary and Second Grade!  I am super excited to be working with your child this year!  This will be my 24th year of teaching.  I am a graduate of Appalachian State and UNC-Charlotte, with a BS in Business Administration and BA in K-6 Elementary Education respectively.  I've taught Pre-Kindergarten, 1st, 2nd, and 4th grades, but I must admit my heart has always been in Second Grade. 
     I am married to my high school sweetheart, and we have two awesome children.  Michael is a college freshman, and Ellie is a ninth grader.  My free time is spent mostly with my family.  My husband and I are also big football fans~Go DAWGS and Go PANTHERS!  If I have a little time all to myself, I enjoy reading, walking, swimming, and Pinterest.
     Communication will play an integral part in helping your child be successful this year.  I hope that you will feel comfortable sharing your ideas, questions, and concerns with me.  Together we will give your child the BEST second grade experience possible.  It is really important to me that your child will look forward to school each day and have lots of fun learning, setting new goals, and persevering through challenges.  We're going to have a wonderful year!
