Mrs. Smith's Bio

Fourth Grade Rocks!  I am Karla Smith, Fourth Grade Teacher.  My number one goal is to ensure that my students reach their goals.  I started my career as a 4th and 5th grade teacher in the St. Louis County area.  I worked there for 14 years before moving to the Kansas City Area.  After settling in on this side of the state, I became a reading/math para at Martin City.  The following year, I became a fifth grade teacher here.  After 3 years of teaching fifth grade, I decided to move to fourth grade.  I am happy to say that is where I have been ever since.  I love teaching 4th grade aged children.  I find them to be inquisitive, funny, energetic, and ready to learn.  Fourth grade is such a critical transition year from the primary grades to the intermediate grades.  It is a grade that students learn to be independent and organized.  It is a grade which allows students to soar in their learning.  The foundations were built in the younger grades and now students build their academic futures.  I believe that my students will be successful, and I am here to help them attain that success in every way.
*** The best way to get ahold of me is email. 
I can't wait to meet all of you on August 15.  Feel free to drop your supplies off at school, meet all of the fourth grade teachers, and see who is in your class.
