Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Carissa Smith and I am a third-grade teacher here at Ethridge Elementary. This will be my first-year teaching at Ethridge and I am ecstatic!
I have a handsome 5-year-old little boy who actually attends kindergarten at Ethridge. He takes up most of my free time, but some hobbies that I enjoy include cooking, crafting, and reading.
I was born and raised in Denton, TX and attended the University of North Texas, GO MEAN GREEN! I earned my Bachelors of Science degree in Interdisciplinary Studies. I am certified to teach early child hood through sixth grade with an additional certification in English as a Second Language.
It is my mission to instill a love of learning in my students. I attempt to teach with passion for my subjects so that my students develop a desire to become lifelong learners.
