My name is Kelly Smith and I am a Literacy Coach. I have the awesome opportunity to work with two amazing schools, Ballentine Elementary and South Lakes Elementary. I have 26 years of experience in the field of education. Through the years, I have been a classroom teacher, instructional facilitator and an instructional coach. This year I have the privilege of supporting the classroom teachers as they strive to ensure quality literacy instruction for the students at both Ballentine Elementary and South Lakes Elementary. When I am not at school, I enjoy spending time with family and friends. I love to cook, go out on the boat and play with my grandchildren!
