About Mrs. Smith

  • This is my 8th year at B.E.S.T. School #6 and my 3rd year teaching 5th Grade ELA and Science.

    This is my 19th year of teaching. I have taught at all different kinds of schools in Buffalo- Public, Charter and Catholic. I have experience teaching all grades K-8. 

    I have earned a Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education and a Masters Degree in Literacy.  I have also completed TESOL coursework, to help our ELL students learn better.

    I grew up in South Buffalo and I still live there today with my husband Neal, my 14 year old daughter Riley, and our dogs Charity & Hope.

    I believe that we are partners in your child's education and welcome open communication. I can be reached anytime at
