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!
