Mrs. Suzanne Smith
Hi, I'm Mrs. Smith!
Teaching is an absolute passion of mine. I am very excited to have the opportunity to be a part of your child's life and education this year!
I have lived in Goldsboro most of my life, but I am originally from Alabama. (War Eagle!)
I have two children Bethany and Brock. I also have a sweet fur baby named Sophie. We enjoy going to the beach, camping, fishing and cooking out at home.
I am a graduate of Faith Christian Academy, and North Carolina Wesleyan College.
The 2021-2022 school year is my sixteenth year of teaching. I have taught Pre-K, Kindergarten and First grade. It is my mission to instill a love for learning in my students so they will become life-long learners.
I am looking forward to a fun and successful year with you and your child!
