Ms. Christine Smith
Hello! My name is Christine Smith and I will be a building interventionist this year. This will be my 7th year at Patriot. Prior to moving to interventionist, I taught kindergarten for 11 years. Teaching kids to read has become a passion of mine as I have taught over the years. To watch the happiness on my student's face when they realize that they can read is a priceless image that gives me warm tingles in my heart and keeps me going every day!
I attended and graduated from FFC School District 8 and then from CSU-Pueblo with my Bachelor's degree in Liberal Studies with a minor in Education. I completed my Master's degree in Education, Curriculum and Instruction: Literacy Studies from Univeristy of Texas- Arlington.
I have a 10 year old daughter. When I am not at school I enjoy spending time with her, our puppy and the rest of our family.
Other things I enjoy include: the Denver Broncos, Starbucks, and children's literature.
