Mrs. Pamela Smith

I think that it is important for children to be immersed in an environment of exploration, stimulation and discovery. This, combined with care, love, nurturing, understanding, and patience will help my students to become eager and successful learners.

With these principles in mind, I believe the third component in helping a child achieve success is the partnership established between teachers and parents. Your child will continue to have more responsibilities as they move into third grade, and they will need OUR help to develop positive routines that encourage achievement. 

Family/Education/Professional Experience:

My husband, Scott, and I have four children: 2 boys & 2 girls.  Our youngest son, Luke, a KPHS grad, graduated from LSU in December, and is in graduate school at the University of Houston. Our  oldest son, Timothy, a KHS grade, went to SFA.  As a lifelong Razorback fan, I never imagined we would have so much purple in our house!   Our daughters, Caroline and Abby, are former WCE Cardinals.  Caroline is a Sophomore at KPHS, and Abby is a Freshman there this year.   We also have a beagle puppy named Finn.  He turned 1 in June.  We love watching our girls cheer for KPHS, going to sporting events, catching a good movie, and riding our bikes along the greenbelts. 

This begins my 22nd year to work with children in elementary grades as a classroom teacher.   I am very happy to be a part of the faculty, students,  and parents at WCE, and am looking forward to a wonderful year.
