Instructor / Student Spotlight
Instructor: Patricia Smith
Patricia (Patty) Smith started teaching ESL to adults and children in her home country Mexico while going to college. After falling in love with teaching Smith took the plunge and decided to move to Texas. She taught kindergarten, first and second grade at Dallas ISD and five years later moved to Denton where she started teaching with Denton ISD. In 2018 she discovered the adult education program and thus began her journey with NTAEL. Patty's hobbies include listening to music and watching movies. Like her students, she too would love to learn a new language in the near future.
"One of my primary goals is to establish a successful track record in NTAEL and bear witness to student's progress. I love to see my students achieve their ESL goals and have fun while learning." Thank you so much for providing your passions to teach in NTAEL, your students should feel grateful to have an instructor like you by their side.
