Mrs. Cindy Smith

I was born and raised in sunny California.  At the age of eighteen I joined a traveling Deaf drama team that was based in New York in which we served as missionaries throughout North America and in Sofia, Bulgaria.  I decided after several years of mission work to fulfill a childhood dream of being a teacher and received my education degree at Lee University in Cleveland, Tennesse.  It was there that I met my husband, an Athens native, and decided to stay in the South.  I graduated with a Bachelors of Science degree in teaching K-8 in 1999.   I have been privleged to have had over 20 wonderful years of teaching and learning, especially here in Athens. I currently teach second grade at SPARK Academy at Cowart.  I have 3 wonderful children, I love to read, be outdoors, travel, and go to ballgames with my family.
