About Me

A little about me

Hello everyone,


My name is Carissa Smith, I am 31 years young. I'm an Arizona Native and absolutely love living here, even though it is hot. I have a husband whom I met in high school and together we have two kids; a son that is 12 and a daughter that is 9.

I will be graduating this October with my Associates degree in Early Childhood Education. I used to run my own in-home daycare for years, however about three months ago I started working as a teacher at a preschool in the 1’s room. I am already training to be the third director in charge, so this has been a blessing. I love teaching children and being around people and hope to continue with my education down the road. The preschool I work for offers a program for education management, so I want to work on that next. (Completely free in costs to me).


I posted a picture of my cheer girls that I coach during football and cheer season. I am in the middle very back, but it is hard to see me. I also coach my daughters softball team and for my daughters first year playing softball, we took the team all the way to All-Stars. It was such a great experience.


I love camping and spending time with my family. If you have any questions for me, please feel free to respond.


I wish everyone the best of luck in this class and I look forward to reading everyone’s posts.


Carissa
