Leslie Smith, Library Media Specialist
Hello! My name is Leslie Smith. I am excited to work with the wonderful staff and students at Van Raub Elementary! Teaching has been my passion for many years. After studying elementary education at Texas Christian University, I went on to teach first, second, third, and fifth grades, as well as working as a reading interventionist and a homebound teacher. My love of reading and books led me back to school to earn a Master's Degree in Library Science at Texas Woman's University. Guiding students to find a book or author that they look forward to reading is a daily goal! With the use of poetry, puppets, and Makerspace materials, I invite your children to come and explore the library and the great resources we offer. I sincerely hope your children will love their time in the library! This school year marks my eighth year as a school librarian, and thirty years as an educator. When I am not at school, I enjoy reading, running, kayaking, skiing, traveling and camping with my husband (Kelly) and our grown children (Tyler, Travis, and Katelyn).
