Urusha Smith


Greetings, I am delighted to serve as the Reading Coach for West Lee Elementary School. My educational background includes a Bachelor's Degree from Winthrop University in Early Childhood Education, and a Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instructions with a focus in Literacy from Lesley University. My areas of certification include Early Childhood, Elementary, and Middle Level Language Arts. I am also Gifted and Talented endorsed. I have over twenty years in education and have a wealth of experiences to share. I am a native of Columbia, South Carolina. I have one son who is a student at the University of South Carolina. My hobbies include cooking, reading, shopping, and zumba. My goal is to share my passion for reading and writing and to help students gain an appreciation for literacy that will reflect in their daily activities and performance in and outside of school. I am excited about this school year!
