Teachers of TN: Alice Ann Smith

“Knowing that I influence the lives of many children by the work I do with teachers motivates me daily. We owe it to every child to prepare them to be not only college or career ready, but also equipped with the knowledge and skills needed to make them successful and happy human beings. Teaching is a hard profession, and working with individual teachers to bring the most rigorous and worthwhile curriculum and instruction to our learners is a critical part of education.”

—Alice Ann Smith, Instructional Coach, Washington County Department of Education
