Mrs. Susan Smith
My name is Susan Smith and I am so glad to be teaching here at Dena'ina for the 3rd year! I have been teaching for many years at various schools and in various positions. I have taught in California, Anchorage, Mississippi and now, here in the Matsu Valley. I have taught every grade from 1st-5th!
This year I will be teaching Literacy and Social Studies to 4th and 5th graders. (Two of my favorite subjects!)
I have a bachelor's of Arts degree in Education and a Master's of Science in Education with an emphasis in Literacy and Language.
I grew up in California so I am relatively new to the Alaskan weather and I LOVE it! This is my favorite state, which is why we moved back here!
I love to kayak, hike, camp and spend time with my family. My hobbies are photography and swimming (not so much at the same time!) My overall passion, though, is for teaching children.
My favorite place in the world (other than at home with my family) is the Kenai Lake! Most beautiful place on the planet.
