Hello! I’m Mrs. Smith, the 4th grade teacher. Deerfield is my hometown as I grew up a Spartan too. After graduating from Deerfield High School I attended Garden City Community College on a Cheerleading Scholarship. Following graduation from there I attended Fort Hays State University where I received my degree in Elementary Education. I started teaching at Deerfield Elementary 18 year ago and in that time I have taught 2nd, 3rd, and 4th, and 5th grades. I am currently the 4th grade teacher, and so excited to welcome everyone back to school this year!
My husband, Brett, also grew up in Deerfield. This made the decision to stay here to raise our family an easy one. Once a Spartan! Always a Spartan!
Brett and I have three daughters and our extra girl. Ashlynn is our oldest daughter and graduated from DHS in 2019 as a 4th generation graduate. She is currently a Sophomore at Wichita State University working on reaching her goal of becoming a teacher also. Alyssa is a freshman at DHS this year. We are very excited to see what adventures high school holds for her the next four year. Alyvia is starting pre-school this year for the first time. She will be in the 3 year old room and she is excited to see her friends. Our extra girl, Elaina, joined our family through foster care, although God definitely had a plan for all of us when he made our paths cross and we are forever grateful that she is one of our girls.
In my free time I coach the Spartan Cheerleaders and chase my girls in whatever sport or activity they are participating in at the moment. I can also usually be found at whatever community event might be happening. I absolutely love taking pictures of all of the above mentioned too, especially my kids, All my Spartan Kids!
