After receiving her AS in Dental Hygiene from Santa Fe College, Mrs. Smith worked in a Periodontal office for 16 years. She lives on a multi-generational family farm with her wonderful husband of 25 years, Arlie, and their two kids, Christian and Sydney, who are both in college. She joined the Academy in 2009 where her children spent a combined 19 years. She became an official teacher’s assistant 3 years ago, but has volunteered in the classroom since her kids were in Pre-K and Kindergarten. When not at school, you can find Mrs. Smith soaking up the sun on the beach or cheering on the Gators in the stands!!
