Ellen is a master teacher who makes Spanish fun and she embraces new challenges for her students all the time.  Her AP Spanish students regularly earn college credit with scores well above the minimum 3.  Ellen is our Spanish Exchange coordinator and Ellen supports our mission in a variety of ways, including chaperoning overnight retreats and leading our Foreign Language Department.  Ellen seeks out adopting new skills such as utilizing Apple Classroom and she models best practices among her colleagues.  Ellen’s recent trip to Rwanda, through Connect Rwanda, created an opportunity for Ellen to impact educators across the globe as well.  Ellen is the fifth teacher at St. Mary's High School that has been recognized for teaching excellence in the county.  We will find out at an event in April if she will earn the title of Teacher of the Year. Congratulations to Ellen Smith!
