Hello! My name is Ms. Mikki Smith.
I am so THRILLED to be your child’s third grade teacher for the 2022-2023 school year.
This is my first year teaching at St. Elizabeth of the Trinity, yet it will be my 6th year of teaching. I have taught both mainstream and ESL classrooms for grades first, second, third, and fifth.
My teaching motto is: “transforming lives one word at a time.”
I grew up in Chicago, Illinois on Chicago’s northside. I attended and graduated from a local catholic high school, here in Chicago.
While studying in Illinois, I obtained my B.A. in English from a state university.
While studying in Arizona, I obtained three masters’ degrees in education— M.Ed. in Elementary Education, M.Ed. in Curriculum and Instruction in Reading, and M.Ed. in Teaching English as a Second Language— from a private Christian school.
