Grade 1 Teachers
Hello! My name is Brittany Smith and I am beyond excited to be teaching at Copperhaven School in the fall, and to become a part of Parkland School Division. I will be embarking on a learning journey with my Grade 1 students, parents and colleagues, and together we will all learn from one another.
My teaching journey began with Elk Island Public School Board teaching a Grade 3/4 split class, after which I moved on to teaching morning and afternoon Kindergarten classes for Edmonton Public School Board. I am thrilled to be teaching Grade 1 this year, as I have a keen interest for this age group and love how hands-on the Grade 1 curriculum is!
I am passionate about building strong, meaningful relationships with students and their families. I hope to inspire my students to become lifelong learners who take risks in learning and persevere when challenges come their way. By offering my students authentic learning experiences that incorporate interests and learning styles, I believe my students will have fun learning together and feel a strong sense of belonging. I welcome diversity into the classroom and support a wide range of learners through hands on, engaging, literacy-rich learning experiences.
I can’t wait to meet my students, the staff, and all the families who will now call Copperhaven School home. See you all in the fall!
