Hello! My name is Danelle Smith, and I am one of the physical education teachers along with Kristina Fitzpatrick. I usually take the lead on the younger kiddos, while Coach Fitz takes the lead on the older ones. I am married to Case Smith, who is the Director of the Recreation Ministry at First Woodway, and I love getting to see him at work every day. Case actually attended WCS for preschool when he was 4 years old! Our hobbies include playing with our dog, Jersey, having bonfires in our backyard, going for bike rides, and eating yummy food!
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. I played soccer for the majority of my life, and also dabbled in tennis, lacrosse, basketball, and golf. 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 graduated in 2017 with my Master of Sport Pedagogy. Teaching physical education is truly the perfect occupation for me, and I am so thankful to get to do it every day!
