    Hi Kinder Parents!
    Welcome to St. Patrick School!  My name is Suzanne Smith (Mrs. Smith), and I have been the Kindergarten teacher here for the last 14 years.  However, I have been a teacher for 43 years ( I know - I'm old!).  This will be my 23rd year teaching Kindergarten.  My other 20 years were spent teaching various combinations of 2nd - 8th Grade.  I love being a Kindergarten teacher - it's my favorite age!  :)
    I graduated from UC Berkeley in 1978.  I am married and have 3 amazing chiildren - Jessica (39), Cole (35), and Hillary (32).  Besides being the Kindergarten teacher at St. Patrick School,  I also coach the JV and Varsity Dance teams at Carondelet High School in Concord with Jessica (who is also the Assistant Principa/Director of Admissions at Carondelet).  Cole is a Naval Academy (Annapolis) graduate and is currently living in San San Francisco where he works for a company called JLL (Global Commercial Real Estate Services/Investment Management.  My youngest daughter, Hillary, graduated from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo in 2011. She completed her Master's Degree Program in Global Health at the University of Copenhagenl and is cuurently living in San Francisco and works at a wonderful non-profit organization called One Heart Worldwide. 
    Although I LOVE being a teacher and a mother, I must admit there is nothing better than being a grandmother!  I have 3 beautiful and amzing granddaughters (Natalie-7, Cameron-2, and Adelina - 21 months) and they are the absolute light of my life! I am also excited to share that my first grandson will be arriving in early April!  Words cannot truly express how overjoyed I am or how grateful I am for these blessings in my life.
    I am looking forward to the upcoming school year, and I am confident that it will be a memorable and wonderful experience for all of us!  If you ever have any questions or concerns, please let me know.
