Ms. Sandra Smith
Hello! I have been an educator for over 20 years and feel very fortunate that I've been able to hold a variety of roles throughout my career. I was an elementary teacher for over 10 years and then spent several years out of the classroom working as an instructional/data coach. This is my 5th year working in Saint Paul and my first year teaching at Dayton's Bluff as the Academic Support teacher. I work with small groups of students who are developing their skills in literacy to become confident and successful readers.
I am from Minnesota and grew up in a northeast suburb of Saint Paul. I have two amazing school age children who keep me grounded and I thoroughly enjoy spending time with them as much as I can. We love to be outdoors playing in the snow during the winter and hiking, camping and swiming in the summer. We are working on visiting as many of the Minnesota State Parks as we can! I am also a huge Vikings fan and enjoy going to home games during the season. Maybe next year we will make it to the big game??? SKOL!!!
