Staci SmithCongratulations to our 2019 Teacher of the Year Staci Smith

Presented by State Senator David Sessions 

Staci Smith has committed her life to teaching and has been an inspiration to her students at Pearl Haskew.  She has started many programs there to get kids involved in feeding the hungry “Soup er Bowl of Caring”, “Cookies for Courage” was started to show appreciation to First Responders within the community.  She also initiated Christmas Stocking for Afghanistan, where her students sold American flags to raise money to fill over 200 stockings during the holidays.  Each stocking was sent to a U.S. Support Hospital Unit.  She has also been known to help other sister schools in need.  During the Hurricane in Panama City Mrs. Smith sent over care packages and supplies to help this school rebuild.  Along the way she led a mission to encourage the students at Pearl Haskew to think of others and lead with a spirit of compassion and integrity.
