My name is Elizabeth Jimenez. I am the Kindergarten/ELA – S teacher. I am originally from Chihuahua, Mexico. I received my Bachelor of language Arts from the University of Northern Colorado, also in elementary education. This is my 5th year teaching Kindergarten here at Smith, but I worked as a Paraprofessional for 10 years. I love working with kids and spending time with my family. I am married and have two handsome boys named Erick and Saul. "I truly love being a part of the children’s growth and development. The children are in school most of their time and I wanted to be an important part of making their environment safe, stable and nurturing."
