Miss Smith's Webpage
I am excited to be your teacher! I look forward to working with you for the 2012-2013 school year. It is going to be a great year!
A little bit about me... This is my tenth year teaching English! I have a Master of Arts in Teaching from Chapman University. I enjoy spending time with my family, visiting amusement parks, going to the beach, and of course, teaching English.
Contact me through email for help at any time during the year or feel free to ask questions during class.
