I am commonly known as Mrs. B. Smith. I have been teaching Elementary education for over 20 years. I have taught grades Pre-K through 5th and EIP Reading. I was a Licensed nurse for 12 years before I pursued teaching. "I've always had a passion for caring and serving others." I received my Bachelor and Master Degree in Early Childhood Education from the Fort Valley State University. Also, I received a Specialist Degree from Troy State University. I possess a Gifted, ESOL,Teaching Support and Coaching endorsement(s) from Middle Georgia RESA. I was honored to be named Teacher of the Year 2010-2011 and 2017-2018 here at Lindsey Elementary. I have been married for 36 years to my wonderful husband Supt. Robert L. Smith, who served in the Marine Corps. We have 2 children, Christian, who is an Academic Advisor for the Upward Bound Program at Fort Valley State University. Robert M, who is a Middle Grade Science and Social Studies Teacher in Henry County. Also, we are blessed to have one grandchild, Little "E 3" , who is 19 months old (our bundle of joy). I am looking forward to a great year of teaching and learning!!!
