Mrs. Karin Smith

Hello! My name is Karin Smith, and this is my 3rd year teaching 3th grade at Wood Elementary. It is my goal as your child’s teacher to provide them with a safe, supportive, and caring learning environment where they will thrive educationally, socially, and emotionally. 

The Waynesville School District holds a special place in my heart as this is where I have grown up and spent my entire schooling career, K-12, as a Tiger! It's such a blessing to teach in the district that helped shape you and work alongside some of the teachers that taught me! 

I currently hold Bachelors in Elementary Education from Central Methodist University. I am currently working towards my Master's in math through the University of Missouri. When I am not busy teaching, I love to spend time with my husband, who is a firefighter and my highschool sweetheart, my 6 year old son and soon to be born, newborn son. We enjoy being outside, whether it be camping, fishing, or playing soccer. We also have 2 dogs and one cat; Izzy, Grace and Mr. Mean Cat. 

I can’t wait to begin the 2023-2024 school year and create new and exciting memories with your kiddo!
