Ms. Sharon Smith

I am a small town girl from Montana.  I graduated from Great Fall High School and went into the United States Marine Corps in 1988.  I spent four years in the military and went back to Montana where I attended Eastern Montana College in Billings, but then moved to Florida at the end of my sophomore year.  I finished school at the University of South Florida with a Bachelor's Degree in History.  I spent about ten years working in the business world before becoming a teacher.  My first teaching position was here at Northside and I have never wanted to go elsewhere.  I have been a Northside parent since 1999 when my oldest daughter started in the 3rd grade.  She has since graduated and I have two more daughters currently in the elementary.  I have been a teacher here since 2005 and am currently the History Department Chair as well as the Student Council Advisor.  You might also see me on the football field grilling hamburgers for all the games!

Lastly, I just want you to know that I love teaching high school and I love teaching history!!  I have been told that I am a great story teller and therefore, the students are very engaged.  I feel very blessed that you have entrusted your child with me and I pray that I can be a blessing to him or her, because I know she or he is a great blessing to me.
