Hello! My name is Kristal Smith. I was born in Los Angeles County, but Madera is the only place that I have called home because we moved here when I was around 2-3 years old. I grew up in Madera Unified and I graduated from Madera High School. After Madera High School, I attended and graduated from the Madera Center. From there, I transferred to Fresno State to earn my BA in Liberal Studies and then my Multiple Subject Teaching Credential with authorizations in Social Science and English. I then attended the IMPACT program to earn my Special Education Teaching Credential. When I am not actively working to support my students and provide the best lessons/education that I can for my students, I enjoy going to the beach, exploring any forest, looking for wildlife, going on road trips, listening to music, watching a good movie/show, etc. Thank you!
