Teacher of the Year

Hayward Smith Elementary would like to congratulate the 2018-2019 Smith Teacher of the Year, Danielle Ardle.  Mrs. Ardle is in her 8th year in the district and is quoted as saying:
" I love working here at Smith with you all, and feel like we are a family. That is what I love most. I love that we are all here for each other, helping each other, encouraging each other, and striving to be the best we can be. You are only as good as the team you surround yourself with." 
Her humility, hard work, attention to detail, and her caring heart are the hallmarks of what a good teacher looks like.  She expemplifies what good teaching is and cares for others above herself.  We are so honored to have her as our 2018-19 teacher of the year.
