Hi, my name is Krista Babich. I am very excited to be working with you and your child this year as the Reading and Math Inclusion Teacher for grades 3-4 at Smith Elementary!  This is my fourth year teaching at Smith. I will be adapting the learning environment to meet the needs of each student.
  I am originally from Duluth, Minnesota, where I earned a Bachelor's Degree in Early Childhood Education. I taught School Readiness and Early Childhood Family Education classes in Minnesota for six years. Prior to coming to Smith Elementary, I taught kindergarten at Hempstead Elementary for three years.

   Besides teaching, I enjoy traveling, reading, listening to music, being outdoors, and spending time with friends and family. My son is a junior at Magnolia West this year. My two older brothers and their families have lived here for many years, so I am fortunate to have my close family here with me in Texas.
   I believe in building strong relationships with my students and their families. I am thankful to be working with you and your child this year! Please call or email me with questions or concerns at any time.
