Mrs. Susan Smith
My name is Susan Smith and I am so glad to be teaching here at Dena'ina for the 6th 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 Kindergarten-5th!
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 but I have lived in Alaskan for about 10 years. This is my favorite state!
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.
