Infant Teacher at First Steps Learning Academy
Hi my name is Maria Smith. I am a wife and a mother of two beautiful girls and two fur babies. I’m a happy, caring, loving, honest. I love BAMA football, tennis, exercising, dogs and spending time with my family. I’m always interested in helping others and animals. I’m a laid back person and easy to get along with. I’m someone you can get along with, but just don’t lie to me. I frown upon that because trust is another thing I’m big on! I’m happy when I’m with my family and making others feel good about themselves. My dislikes are when people are unkind to others and any kind of beans except green beans. Lol! I have worked with children for about 14yrs. In that time I have substituted and owned a home daycare.
I’m married to my husband and we have two daughters and two fur babies. My home life is loving and caring. We love all kinds of food and enjoy spending time together. I was originally born in the Philippines and grew up in Alabama in a small town of Russellville. My husband and daughters all graduated from RHS as well. My husbands parents grew up in Russellville and my mother from the Philippines and my father from Belgreen, Alabama. We are have moved from Alabama and now living in Florida. We moved due to my husband and a new job position
Life's Awesome Moments
I graduated from Russellville High School. I attended 1yr at Shelton Community College and 1yr at The University Of Alabama. I have experience working with children for about 14yrs. In this time I have substituted, worked at a daycare center and then owned my own home daycare.
Working With Children
I love working with children to see what new things they have learned and their expressions once they have accomplished something. My passion is just to teach them and hope I’m doing the best I can to see them develop and learn.
