Welcome Kristen Smith!
LASD welcomes Kristen Smith to Foster Elementary as the newest 3rd grade teacher!
What college/s did you attend while preparing for your assignment at LASD?
I am a graduate of Grand Valley State University and have done post-graduate studies at Marygrove College.
What do you like best about teaching?
I love the relationships with students, and to integrate fun into school activities. I became a teacher because my teachers meant so much to me when I was a kid.
Share your favorite childhood school memory.
I grew up with 5 sisters and 1 brother, so there was always excitement in my home. We spent a lot of time outside, hiking, playing in the creek, and making mud pies. Every one of us played an instrument, so we were a noisy bunch.
What are you most looking forward to working at LASD?
I am most looking forward to team teaching and getting to know everyone at Foster. I am so excited to teach third grade!
What do you like to do in your free time?
I love to spend time with my family and friends: traveling, going to the beach, attending concerts, camping, kayaking, exercising, or reading a good book.
