Meet Mrs. Smith

Hello Flintville Nation,
As you are becoming acquainted with our school I would like to introduce myself and express how grateful I am to be part of the administration of Flintville School. How rewarding it is to be a member of the faculty of the school in which I attended until ninth grade!!! I cherish and recall many, many memories from my involvement with this great school!!!

After leaving FES in 1985, I finished high school at Lincoln County in 1988. Motlow was the first college that I attended followed by the University of Tennessee in Chattanooga where I graduated with a double major in Early Childhood Education and Elementary Education in 1992. I then attended Tennessee State University where I received two graduate degrees. In 1999 I earned a Masters Degree in Administration and Supervision and in 2008 I earned an Education Specialist Degree in Administration and Supervision.

I began my teaching career at Flintville in 1994 as a Kindergarten teacher. In 2002, looking for different experiences, I began teaching in Tullahoma, Tennessee at Robert E. Lee Elementary where I taught first grade and kindergarten. In 2004 we bought a neighboring farm of my husband's family and I began teaching at Unity school. While there I taught first and second grade and served as an academic coach until 2015. In 2015 I was honored with the position of Assistant Principal/Curriculum Coordinator at Flintville School.

I have been married for twenty-six years to Lee Smith. Lee works for Fayetteville Public Utilities as the FPU Safety Coordinator and together we have two wonderful children Josey Lee and Kirby Wayne. Josey is attending Tennessee Technological University in Cookeville Tennesee pursuing a degree in Special Education. She will be graduating this spring, May 2020, upon completion of her student teaching.  Kirby is a Senior at Milligan College and will graduate this spring also with a degree in kinesiology. He will be completing his internship this year as a strength and conditioning coach at East Tennessee University. 

I enjoy my involvement with the students and hope to continue to have a positive impact on each of the students that I encounter. If at any time you would like to discuss your child's progress or any school involvement please do not hesitate to contact me.
