Charla Smith
Hello! I am so happy to be teaching Pre-K at the Academy for Academics and Arts. I have been an educator for 28 years. I taught Kindergarten for 12 years. This is my 4th year teaching Pre-K, both in private and public schools. I have a masters degree in Early Childhood Education with a focus in Early Childhood Development. I am married with three boys. All of my boys attended AAA. One is currently here in the 7th grade. I have a son at Lee High and one graduated last year from Lee and is attending Savannah College of Art and Design. They are all musicians and performers. They participate in theatre, choir, dance and orchestra. My educational philosophy is that through a proper environment and with developmentally appropriate learning activities, students should be able to become independent, capable, individuals. I love teaching through the arts!
