Mrs. Charla Smith

I am a Huntsville native and a proud product of Huntsville City Schools. I enjoy reading, cooking, playing with my dog, my kitty, and my new guinea pig. I love listening to mysteries on podcasts, listening to live music, and spending time with my family. I am a huge fan of musical theater and can often be found sewing for shows in the costume shop.

My goal for my young scholars is to create a safe, loving environment in which they can learn to work together, play together, gain independence, and expand their creativity. We are a family in my classroom and I am here to help you along your parenting journey!

I have 18 years of classroom instruction experience. I taught for 10 years and then resigned for 15 years to raise my family of 3 boys. I returned to the classroom in 2013 and am thrilled to be at Sonnie Hereford, III Elementary School with the amazing staff of wonderful teachers! I taught Kindergarten for 12 years and have been in the Pre-K business for 6 years and I absolutely feel at home with the littles! I have also taught 2-, 3-, and 4 year olds in private schools. I have taught Kindergarten, First Grade, and Second Grade. But Pre-K is my JAM! Everyday is a new adventure in Pre-K! We live, learn, laugh, and love together!
