Mrs. Mandy Smith

Hello! My name is Mandy Smith and this is my 14th year as an educator with OCS! I have been an Instructional Assistant, a First Grade Teacher and this will be my 8th year being a Reading Specialist in OCS! I grew up in Emerald Isle and Richlands, NC and attended OCS in grades K-12. I graduated from ECU with a degree in Elementary Education and a K-12 Reading License.  My passion is helping struggling readers find a love for literacy. I am married to my high school sweetheart and we have two beautiful children together. We love the beach and traveling to new places. I am so excited to be an Eagle and to help your child soar in reading!
