My name is Ms. Smith and I am an ELL specialist at Vento. I really enjoy teaching English language skills. I know what it is like to learn another language because I was a student in Norway when I was in 9th grade. Learning Norwegian was a lot of hard work, especially when I had to write in Norwegian! I have lived in other states but was born in Minnesota. I live in St. Paul with my husband and two dogs. I have a Westie and a Corgi and I have always had a love of animals, especially dogs!
