Mrs. Ellen Ennis-Smith

I learned to explore the world around me at an early age.  I tagged along with a many older brothers and spent time on my grandparents farm.  I was exposed to snakes, frogs, fishing worms and the great world around me. I am sure this is were my love of science began.  I love teaching students to problem solve, view various perspectives and open their minds to all the possibilities.  I have been blessed to be recongnized for what I love.  I worked with the NC State and NC cooperative extension to create an outdoor classroom. I have been awarded numerous grants to provide hands-on learning opportunities for my students. The last being a Solar Energy Grant from Wake Electric in 2015.  I have been recognized and nominated numerous times by Johnston County's Flame For Learning and making as a finalist in 2011.  I have been awarded the Johnston County Conservation Teacher of the Year, the North Carolina Conservation Teacher of the year and been regonized as a finalist for the National Wetlands Educator Award.  I have also been awarded the North Carolina Science Teacher Associations Teacher of the Year. 

I began teaching as a lateral entry teacher in 1998 and all of my years of teaching have been at Smithfield Selma High School.  I am AP and IB trained. 

I currently live in Four Oaks with my husband Patrick and son, Geoffrey.
