Ms. Christine Smith
Hello! My name is Christine Smith and I teach kindergarten at Patriot Elementary School on Fort Carson, CO. Teaching kindergarten was and still is my dream job and I have been fortunate to have taught kindergarten all eleven years of my career thus far! Although as a learner, I love math, as an educator, I love teaching children to read and write! 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 9 year old daughter. When I am not at school I enjoy spending time with her as well as with our large family.
Other things I enjoy include: the Denver Broncos, Starbucks, and children's literature.
