Hello, My Name Is...
Mrs. Maria E Smith
This is my 13th year teaching Gifted Education.
I love working with these remarkable children
to encourage their gifts and their social/emotional growth.
I am a graduate of
UAB - 1997 - B.A. - Linguistics
UAB - 2000 - M.A. - Early Childhood Education
USA - 2005 - M.A. - Gifted Education.
I have been married to my best friend, Mitchell, since 1983.
We have one child, Tre, who is the apple of our eye.
Recently, our other son, Jimmy, has come to stay with us
from Kenya while he is studying to get his Pharmacy license.
We also have two dogs, Wyatt & Kota, who believe it or not, are NOT...
brother and sister. Wyatt (L) is 3 years older than Kota, who in this picture, is 7 MONTHS old!
They were both adopted from the Greater Birmingham Humane Society.
