Mrs. Smith was born and raised in Southeastern Colorado. She graduated from the University of Northern Colorado with her Bachelors in Elementary Education in 2003. She taught second grade for five years at Frontier Academy in Greeley, CO. She and her husband moved to Nebraska in 2008 for his new job and she taught first grade at Jefferson Elementary for 3 years.
