Hello! My name is Danelle Smith, and I am the new physical education teacher along with Kristina Fitzpatrick. I am really excited to help out Coach Fitz with the amazing physical education program she has been implementing at Woodway Christian School. I recently married Case Smith, who is the Director of Recreation Ministry at First Woodway, so I am excited to work alongside him as well! God has given me the incredible opportunity to teach at WCS, and I cannot wait to start.
I grew up in Eden Prairie, Minnesota with a very loving family who taught me how to pursue Jesus at a young age. Sports have always been a big part of my life, as I participated in many sports growing up and specialized more in tennis and soccer in high school. I decided to pursue physical education because I think that it is a really unique avenue in the school where I get to combine all of my passions; God, children, and sports! I graduated from Baylor University with a degree in All-level Physical Education in 2016, and am currently working on my Master’s of Sport Pedagogy. Teaching physical education is seriously the perfect occupation for me, and I am so thankful to get to do it every day!
