Miss Asha Smith
Welcome to second grade! I am so excited to be your child’s teacher. I can not wait to see how much they will grow and learn this year. Before I started at Sunrise, I previously worked in Bahrain. A small island in the Middle East. I taught first grade there for 3 years and finished my last year there teaching Math and Science in 3rd grade. I am originally from Atlanta, Georgia. This is where my education career began. I taught first grade for 2 years. I graduated from Georgia State University with a Bachelors in Early Childhood Education. I am currently working on my Master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction at Grand Canyon University.
"Education is a powerful weapon which you can choose to change the world." - Nelson Mandela. I believe that education is key and can change a child's future. As your child's educator for the year my purpose is to not only teach the curriculum but life skills which can be powerful in changing the world. Our classroom is a community where we build each other up and create a safe space for trying new things.
Thank you for entrusting me with your student's. I believe we will make great connections this year. I also believe we will make even greater strides in being better learners, students and people not only at Sunrise but in the world.
Please do not hesitate to reach out to me should you have any questions or concerns.
Ms. Asha Smith
