My name is Claudia Alba. I am from Mexico. I attended the University of Northern Colorado at Lowry. My passion for teaching began since I was in Kindergarten and because I love working with children.
I have worked at Smith since 2002. I worked as a paraprofessional for 4 years and I am going for my 11th year as the 1st grade ELA-S teacher. I love the Smith community, students, and parents and I plan to stay here for a long time.
Outside of school, I love to spend time with my family especially with my 6 and 1 year old daughters Jacqueline and Bethzaida. We attend zumba classes together because we enjoy dancing and it is also a stress and energy reliever.
