About Me

Winter Beach PictureWelcome to my online teaching portfolio! My name is Kristin Smith, and I have been teaching for four years. I teach English and history, and I have also taught yearbook and newsletter. I am an innovative, dedicated educator with a commitment to helping all students succeed. I have a passion for teaching, and I could not imagine a career any other field.


Outside of teaching, I am also a writer. In 2012, I participated in the Eastern Michigan Writing Project Summer Institute, and my portfolio from that experience can be found here. I completed National Novel Writing Month that November. I write poetry and fiction, and it is my dream to one day publish a novel or a book of poems. I am working on editing my first complete novel right now. I also enjoy spending time with my husband and our two dogs.
