Teacher of the Week

Ms. Mary Crit Smith

Teacher Feature: Ms. Smith

At the beginning of each school year we ask the faculty and staff to fill out a fun questionnaire about themselves. Each week we choose someone to feature, and we share their questionnaire so that everyone can learn more about our awesome MSPCS faculty. Our featured teacher this week is Ms. Smith, our fourth grade teacher.
