Mrs. Kristy Smith - Assistant Principal Intern
I am thrilled to join the Penguin Family and serve as a principal resident alongside Laurel Park’s fabulous administrative team. My education began in southeastern Ohio, where I learned the importance of working together as a team and challenging myself to be better. I graduated from Denison University with a bachelor’s degree in biology and a master’s degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Ashland University. My sense of adventure brought me to North Carolina, where I worked as a teacher in Wake County for the last thirteen years.
I am a passionate educator who advocates for each child, so they have the opportunity to become the best version of themself. My husband Jason is also a Wake County educator, and we have two sons, Henry 9, and Oliver 5. We love being active by participating in 5Ks and obstacle course races. We also enjoy going to the beach, fishing, and boating.
I am extremely happy to join the Laurel Park Penguin Family! Please let me know if there is anything I can do to support your child.
