"It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men" (Frederick Douglass, American Writer and Statesman).
I found this quote and wanted to share it, as Smith STEM School strives to do just that. With a caring, knowledgeable staff, your children are assured a very high quality educational experience that will prepare them for their journey to middle school and beyond. As a school psychologist for close to 20 years, I have found that even with never-ending educational changes, the goal is still the same-to build strong, resilient and compassionate learners. Being a parent of three sons, I know how hard it can be to raise good kids but also the joy in seeing them become self-sufficient young adults, who are actually enjoyable to be with! My hobbies include yoga (I am a registered yoga teacher for adults and children), Zumba (just plain fun), paddleboarding and being out in nature with my new puppy, Charlie (who I hope will become a therapy dog one day).
