About Me
My name is Lesley Smith. This is my 17th year teaching Early Childhood Special Education at Hillsdale Communuty Schools. I have wanted to be a teacher ever since I was 8 years old! I love what I do and always fall in love with the kiddos in my class! We have a great time! The children are always having so much fun, they don't often realize that they are learning! ;)

I have been married for almost 20 years to my amazing husband, Mike. We have three children who have or are attending HCS, Aaron (Sophomore at SVSU), Nathan (11th grader) & Katie (10th grader). As a family, we enjoy going out on the boat, tent camping and exploring new places. We love to take hikes, especially in Northern Michigan and the Upper Penninsula! Have you ever been to Ki-ti-chi-kipi before? It's amazing!!

I can also be seen at our high school football games in the fall as well as track meets and tennis matches in the spring. This upcoming spring will be my 4th year as assistant coach for our Hillsdale middle school track teams.
