Degrees and Certifications:
aŋpétu wašté, (“Good Day” in Lakota). My name is Leonna Smith, and I am beyond thrilled to join Loachapoka Elementary as a first-year Special Education teacher. As an Auburn University graduate (2011) with 6 years in education, I know how special Lee County schools are to the growth of our state. I bring versatile teaching, coaching, and mentoring skills for diverse age groups. Currently, I am pursuing a master's in educational Curriculum and Design Instruction from Sinte Gleska University.
Beyond teaching, I find joy in reading, fishing, and attending rodeos. I'm absolutely excited about the upcoming academic year and can't wait to warmly support you in every possible way.
