Bio
Hello and welcome to Mrs. Karen S. Smith's 3rd grade!  I am originally from Abbeville, Alabama.  I attended Troy University and received a Bachelor Degree in Elementary Education and a Master Degree in Elementary Education and Reading.  I am married to Randall Smith, a former Banks student. We have two daughters, Anna and Allison. Anna is married to Curtis, and they have my adorable 4 grandchildren, Adelyn, William, Lydia, and Clara. Allison graduated from University of Alabama and is Nanny. I taught in Henry County for 10 years and this will be my 41st year in teaching.  I enjoy reading, watching TV, playing with my grandchildren, meeting authors, participating in Bible study groups, and going to concerts.
