Ms. Mackenzie Smith

Hello and welcome to first grade! My name is Mackenzie Smith and I am thrilled to be a part of Hoover Elementary! I graduated from Michigan State University in 2018. Since then, I have had a full year internship in a first-grade classroom in the Waterford School District and spent a year teaching English as a second language in a bilingual middle/high school in Spain. At Hoover Elementary, I have taught both fourth grade and first grade. In my free time, I enjoy traveling, hiking, spending time with my family, and reading a good book. 

I strongly believe in building a positive classroom community and supporting each student as an individual. I can’t wait to connect with you and share my love for learning with your child! Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns.

It is going to be a great year of learning and growing together! Go Rockets!
