Ms. Smith

Hello! My name is Mollie Smith. I am thrilled to teach 5th grade this year at East, where I will be co-teaching with the phenomenal Mr. Phinn. I've been a substitute teacher at East for the past four years. One of the most rewarding aspects of subbing was having the opportunity to build relationships with students and staff throughout the entire school. East has always felt like a second home to me, and the people are like family to me.  

My goal is to set high expectations for my students and create an exciting learning environment they will thrive in. Each student has something unique to bring to our classroom, and I will work to help each student realize their full potential. I am excited about building successful relationships with all of you, so please let me know how I can help to best support your child’s learning needs.

In my spare time I enjoy reading and hiking. I also love spending time with my girls, Chloe and Clare, both of whom attend school in the district. I have an eight-year-old chocolate lab named Kai, and I love taking him for walks. 

East is an exciting place with a stellar staff, terrific teachers, and the most wonderful students. It's an honor to begin my teaching career at East, where it will be my priority to foster a love of learning!
