Miss Erika Smith
Hello Hughes Students & Families!
I am thrilled to be joining the team here at Hughes Elementary this year! This will be my sixth year teaching and I absolutely love my job. I have previously taught kindergarten, second, and third grade and I cannot wait to dive into the world of first grade this year!
I always wanted to be a teacher growing up and I even asked Santa for an overhead projector when I was in third grade! I am passionate about helping all students grow and achieve their personal best by creating a warm and supportive classroom environment. I also believe in the importance of building a strong classroom community and fostering a lifelong love of learning.
I attended Santa Clara University for my Bachelor of Science: Liberal Studies, Pre-Teaching and continued on at SCU earning my Masters in the Art of Teaching. Outside of the classroom I enjoy cooking, teaching fitness classes, and crafting.
My fiancé, Justin, and I moved from California to Grapevine this summer! We are thrilled to be here and we have enjoyed starting to explore the area!
I look forward to meeting and working with you this school year!
