Anna Miles Smith, Kindergarten

Anna earned her Master of Arts in Teaching degree from Southern Oregon University in Ashland Oregon.

She has been the Kindergarten Teacher at the Little Red Barn Montessori School since 2009. She continues to develop new projects and unique programs to create a rich learning environment for our Kindergarten class.

As a teacher that has experienced various learning environments, I feel extremely fortunate to work at LRB. The small class size allow me to provide individualized instruction and focus on each child’s unique learning style. In addition, less time is spent on classroom management and more time is spent on building social/emotional skills and self-confidence. My goal is to provide a fun and engaging environment that will foster a foundation based on love of learning and the necessary academic skills for a successful future. – Anna
