I began my teaching career at Augusta Middle School in 1999 teaching 7th Grade American History. As times changed, I moved to 8th Grade American History and continue teaching American History from Colonial Era thru Reconstruction.
I graduated in the Fall of 1998, so the spring of 1999 I covered two long term substitute positions. For the first 9 weeks I covered 1st grade at Ewalt Elementary in Augusta, KS. During this time I learned how to keep 1st graders in the hallway for 2 hours while the Haysville Tornado occurred. My 2nd nine weeks of the semester I jumped to 8th grade English at the Augusta Middle School. A couple of weeks into this experience the Columbine shooting occurred in Colorado. We at AMS had our own scare and spent a day up at the high school, while the building was being searched from an outside group. This was a unique way to start my education career.
Married Robin Smith in 2010
Malachi Smith was born 2008, he is a student at St. James Catholic School
I am the Liturgical Music Director at St. James Catholic Church. I play the piano, organ, and flute. When I’m not at church or school, I enjoy spending time with my family, crocheting and putting together jigsaw puzzles. House work is not one of my favorite things to do!
I enjoy taking students to Washington DC. May 2022 is my next possible trip, may be pending do to covid-19. Ask me if you have questions.
