Hey Lead Mine Leopards! My name is Sarah Smith and this will be my 8th year teaching! I grew up in New Bern, NC and I still enjoy visiting my parents in my sweet hometown. I earned my Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education with a concentration in Child Development at East Carolina University. Go Pirates! I began my teaching career in Greenville, NC where I taught Kindergarten for 2 years and First Grade for 1 year before moving to Raleigh. I've been teaching Kindergarten at Lead Mine now for 4 years, but I am excited to learn and grow with FIRST Grade! My Husband is Trey who is a PE Coach at Lacy Elementary School. We have a sweet yellow lab named Wade! My favorite quote is "The best part about my classroom is who I share it with."
