Welcome to 5th grade Science!
My name is Christie Smith. I have taught Science for 3 years in upper elementary. I found science so very difficult as a student in grade school so when I finally started to understand the subject in college I developed a love for it. It was then that I decided that I had to teach Science to young students so that they would have a better opportunity for enjoying it then I had. I love teaching Science and creating young scientists every year.
I am very proud to join the Santa Fe team this year! The fifth grade team is ready to make some passionate, independent learners this year. We are striving to prepare our students for the middle school years, therefore, as the year progresses you will notice the teachers giving more and more responsibility to your students. Middle school can be extremely hard if students are not prepared and we want all of our students to succeed. We have met with the middle school teachers to see exactly what they wish to see from the entering 6th grades and we are excited to fulfill these wishes.
We work as a team so may meet with one teacher or we can call a whole team meeting to discuss any questions, concerns or needs. Parents are a very important part of educating children so it is important that we keep in touch. Please feel free to call or email me at 817-202-2300 or CSmith4@C-isd.com anytime.
