Second Grade Teacher

 

“Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus!”
Philippians 2:5

 

My name is Amy Smith, and this is my tenth year teaching second grade at WCS. As a young girl, I always knew I wanted to be a teacher. Both of my parents were educators, so I spent many hours “playing school” with my younger sister trying to be just like them. Also, I have always had a special place in my heart for children as well as a desire to help them achieve their very best while having fun.

When it came time for college, it was an easy decision for me to choose a degree in elementary education. I graduated from Baylor University in 1997 and married my best friend, Chris, one month later. My first teaching position was in a pre-k classroom at Bosqueville ISD. I spent three years teaching pre-k and then stayed home for eight years to raise my children. My daughter is now eighteen and my son is fifteen years old. Once my children were in school full time, I was fortunate enough to work here at WCS teaching pre-k for one year. The next year I began teaching second grade, and I have really enjoyed working with this age group! We have a blast in the second grade!

When I am not at school, I stay very busy keeping up with my family. I am extremely thankful for the beautiful and supportive family God has blessed me with, and they are definitely my favorite way to pass time.  This year I am very excited to watch my daughter begin a new chapter in her life. She is a freshman at Texas A&M. My son is a sophomore at Midway High School. He is on the Varsity Boys Golf Team as well as the drum line.  Our Friday nights are busy but fun! There is never a dull moment at our house! When I can relax, I love to read a good book!
