Ms. Sylvia Smith
The 2019-2020 school year will be my 8th year teaching and the second at O'Connor. This year I am teaching 12th grade English, Freshman Honors English, and a cohort of Gifted English for Freshman and Sophomores.
A California transplant, I moved to Arizona in 2008 to pursue my Bachelors in Secondary Education, English with a minor in European History at ASU. In 2016, I achieved my endorsement in Gifted Education through Estrella Mountain Community College. Currently I am working on my Masters in English Literature through NAU.
I look forward to working with students to define and pursue their interests!
