Mrs. S. Renae Smith

Welcome to Freedom Elementary! I am extremely excited about embarking on my third year teaching 4th grade in the Waynesville school district. I previously taught 1st and 2nd grade at East, as well as 3rd and 5th grade here at Freedom. I have 16 years' teaching experience.  I have taught Pre-K, 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades.  I received my Bachelor's of Science in Elementary Education from Northeastern State University. I received my Master's of Education in Language and Literacy through Park University.  I live in Dixon with my husband, 13 year old son, 5 year old son, and 4 year old daughter. We have 2 pets- one dog (Chance) and one guinea pig (Lark Brown). I enjoy hiking, camping, traveling, the Dallas Cowboys, and reading.  
Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns.  I am most easily reached by email or Remind, but will check my phone messages as often as possible.  We will have a blast this year, and I look forward to helping your child develop to the highest potential!
