Mrs. Mast

Welcome to South Smithfield Elementary

Home of the DYNAMIC DOLPHINS

I am so excited to be back at the school that I first started my teaching career.  I have been teaching for 25+ years. I have taught grades Pre-K thru 9th grade.  I have called Johnston County my home for my entire life.  Teaching is my passion and watching my students grow and develop socially, emotionally, physically and academically is truly a blessing.  Thank you for sharing your precious child with me.  I look forward to meeting all the parents of my class and working together with you for your child's successes.
