Fourth Grade Teachers
School Phone: (678) 455-4500
I am a flexible, fun loving teacher in my 14th year of teaching! I have a specialist degree in Teacher Leadership with a gifted and reading endorsement and have experience teaching first through fifth grade. I have two handsome boys who are in 5th grade and 9th grade. One of my favorite aspects of teaching is building relationships with children. I am excited to get to know your child and have an exceptional school year!

Hello! It's going to be a great 4th grade year full of new adventures and new discoveries. This will be my 19th year teaching. I have been an inclusion classroom, have my masters and specialist degree, and have taught 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grade...ALL at Matt Elementary! In my classroom you are cared about! I value your ideas, thoughts, and actions. You have unique talents and strengths and I can't wait for you to share them with me and your classmates! I have a 13 year old son, so I know communication is the key! I cannot wait to get the year started and watch you grow!

My name is Angel Smith and I am thrilled to join Matt Elementary this year. My husband, Matt, two year old son, Dawson, and our two dogs, Bonnie & Clyde, recently moved to Forsyth county from Gainesville, GA. My favorite pastime is getting together with my family and friends, just relaxing and enjoying each other's company. I also love crafting when I have time, and I have recently taken up hand calligraphy. I have a bachelor's degree in psychology from North Georgia College & State University, and a Master of Arts in Teaching Elementary Education from Liberty University. This will be my third year teaching fourth grade and my sixth year in education. Other than teaching 4th grade, I have served as a kindergarten paraprofessional and as a specials teacher. Getting to know students, their families, and building a classroom community are some of the most important things to me as a teacher. There are so many fun and exciting things about 4th grade, and I look forward to a phenomenal year ahead! 280814 email@example.com Holly Smyre
I have been at Matt since 2003, and I'm excited to be teaching fourth grade again this year! I have a degree in early childhood education from the University of Georgia, and I have a Masters degree from Walden University. When I'm not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my cats (Brooklyn, Bronx, and Boris), reading, traveling, and watching the New York Yankees. I'm looking forward to an incredible year with my students!
