 Mrs. Smith 



Welcome to Second Grade!

 My name is Barbara Smith.  I am delighted to have your child in my Second Grade class and I look forward to a fabulous year!!

This will be my 20th year at China Elementary.  I teach English/Language Arts which includes Reading, Phonics, Spelling, Grammar, Writing, and Social Studies.  

I grew up in New Orleans and graduated from Louisiana State University with a B.S. in Education. I have been married to my husband, Bill, for 36 years.  We have 3 grown children and 5 grandchildren.  

During the summer, my husband and I love to travel.  We recently returned from a trip to Scandinavia where we explored beautiful fjords and glaciers.   I also love the beaches of Northern Lake Michigan where my family has "summered" for 6 generations.

If you ever have any questions or concerns, please feel free to call 981-6410 or to email me at

My conference time is 11:15-12:00.
