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.
