Meet Mrs. Smith
Hi! My name is Carly Smith. This is my second year as a teacher librarian at Wallburg Elementary School. I went to Wallburg all six years of elementary school, and I am very passionate about working with the students at Wallburg-- a place I call home.
I get the blessing and honor of seeing every student in the school each week! I am so excited about working with your students this year in the Media Center!
I graduated from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro (UNCG) in May 2014 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education (K-6). I immediately enrolled in The Graduate School at UNCG the following semester in order to earn my Masters of Library and Information Studies (MLIS) degree. I graduated with my MLIS degree in December 2016!
During graduate school, I served as a certified substitute teacher at Wallburg and Friendship Elementary. I often served as a long-term substitute, and filled two maternity leaves. I was hired as a full-time 3rd grade teacher from January-June 2016 in order to see a maternity leave to completion until the end of the 2015-2016 school year.
I served as a long-term Media Assistant substitute from April-June 2017 at Oak Grove Middle School.
I worked as a school library intern at Wallburg during both the Fall 2014 and Fall 2016 semesters, and I absolutely loved my experience! I love working with the Wallburg faculty and staff. It is an amazing community to be a part of, and I am so grateful that I get to work at a school that means so much to me and my family.
My favorite children's books are Wonder by R. J. Palacio and Oh, The Places You'll Go! by Dr. Seuss.
Fun Fact: My husband proposed to me at Wallburg in October 2014. That day, I was interning in the library and working on a major project for graduate school. It was an extremely special day that I'll never EVER forget!
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at email@example.com, or call the school.
I am available from 7:30-8:10 AM, and 2:30 -3:30 PM.
