Teacher Spotlight: Mrs. Smith

By Hailey Staib

I sat down with high school art teacher Mrs. Smith to get the main scoop on her job and her lifestyle. She was very open with her responses (And might I just add what a marvelous teacher she is).  Mrs. Smith teaches Art 1, Art 2, Photography, and 2-D Art here at the high school.
