Welcome to the Eagle's Nest! I am a new teacher moving from the private sector to the public sector. Becoming a teacher was always my childhood dream. I am very excited to be on this new, fun, and exciting journey as an Eagle at West Smithfield Elementary. I started out teaching Pre-K, and that is how I knew teaching was definitely my passion. My husband and I have 6 children between us, and we have 3 wonderful dogs. We are looking forward to a wonderful school year here at WSES.
