My name is Alyssa Smith. This is my first year teaching at Sauganash Elementary, and I am thrilled to be a part of your community. I am from Park Ridge and have many friends from Sauganash. I graduated from the University of Dayton with a degree in Early Childhood Education. I taught Kindergarten for two years at School of St. Mary in Lake Forest and also taught Third Grade at Saint Andrew School for the past three years. I hope everyone had a relaxing and joyful summer! I look forward to a great school year and working with you and your children in helping them to become life-long learners!
