Mrs. Smith

I am so excited to be a part of the Highland Lakes Family. Though this is only my third year teaching at Highland Lakes School, I am not new to teaching or Deer Valley Unified School District. This school year will mark my 28th year as a teacher and my 23nd year teaching in Deer Valley. During this time I have taught elementary, middle school, and high school levels with an emphasis in mathematics. In addition to teaching, I am also an alumni to DVUSD. My Journey started when I was 5 years old as a kindergartener at Park Meadows and continued through high school as one of the first graduating classes of Deer Valley High School.

For fun, our family are huge Cardinal fans. We love our team and enjoy spending our Sunday afternoons cheering them on. This year we are looking forward to a winning season and are hopeful we will be watching them take it all the way to the Super Bowl.
