Mr. Chris Smith

This is my 20th year of teaching. I have taught Kindergarten, 1st grade, 2nd grade, and 4th grade. I have a 15 year old daughter named Reagan, and a 13 year old son named Easton. When I am not at school I’m spending time taking them to volleyball, baseball, or basketball. I enjoy watching my daughter play volleyball and I enjoy coaching my son’s baseball team.

Mrs. Jessi Chantivong

This is my 8th year of teaching. My husband is in the Army and we have two sons, Malakhai and William. We love to play basketball, watch movies and sports, and play board games together. I’m a HUGE Boston Celtics fan, which is why my favorite color is green! I love food! I like to try different foods, but I have to be careful because I am allergic to cinnamon, coconut, and tree nuts (especially almond). I also love reading!
