Smith is president of Sigma Alpha Omega, president of the Political Science Honor Society, serves on the executive board for the American Red Cross, and is a member of the Spanish Honor Society, Spanish Club and Georgia Education Mentorship program.
She will begin teaching in August and commit two years to TFA’s mission.
“I think a lot of corps members don’t know how two years is going to affect them, but it has a great impact in their lives and a lot of them end up staying with TFA. I’m absolutely open to staying in the classroom for longer than two years if I feel I’m able to make a difference,” Smith said. “I’m not going to Georgia College to study education, so when you put me in a room with kindergartners, there’s definitely a learning curve. Through my leadership trial and error experiences at Georgia College, I don’t feel limited in any way and I have a large perspective of the world. I’m looking forward to this new challenge.”
