• Hello!
    My name is Kristi Rae Smith, and this is my year third year teaching and coaching for the Hitchcock-Tulare School District, and this is my twelth year in the teaching and coaching profession.  This will be my first year as the Hitchcock-Tulare second grade teacher (I previously taught Title I.)  In addition to my teaching duties, I am the head girls basketball coach and assistant track coach.
    I grew up on our family farm near Hitchcock.  In 2003 I graduated from Hitchcock High School.   I earned my BA in elementary education from Dakota Wesleyan University (Tiger PRIDE) in December of 2007, and in 2013 I graduated with my Master's in education from Southwest Minnesota State University (Go Mustangs)!!!  Prior to working at Hitchcock-Tulare, I was a teacher and a coach for nine years at Colman-Egan.
    My husband Wayne and I have been married for nine years.  This summer we had a beautiful little girl named Remington!!!  In my free time, I love to spend time with my family, help at the farm, run, play basketball, read, cheer on the Lakers, and watch reality TV!
