Hello, my name is Fran Smith; welcome to my online classroom. I am a native of Rockmart. I attended private schools until the 11th grade, and then attended and graduated from Rockmart High School in 1994. In 1998, I received my BS in Early Childhood Education from The University of Georgia. (Gooooooo Dawgs!) I love my Dawgs and Georgia football!!! I later went on to receive my Masters degree in Teaching Reading, and the latest, my education specialist degree in brain-based learning and teacher leadership, was completed in 2012. I am married to Bryan Smith, and we have 3 children: Sean, Sara  and Shepherd. I am currently in my 19th year of teaching for Polk School District. Throughout the past 19 years, I've taught multi-age (1st and 2nd grades together),  1st and 2nd grades independently, Pre-K for 12 years, EIP, and  kindergarten at Van Wert Elementary. This year I am teaching 4th grade science & social studies.

I LOVE my job and Van Wert Elementary!!!!
