Hi there, my name is Joni Smith. Welcome to my journey! This blog was created so that I can share my experiences as Louisiana’s Teacher of the Year with some of my favorite people……my students and my community!  I aim to elevate the teaching profession while sharing how my students have moved from a fixed mindset to a growth mindset.  So buckle up, it’s going to be a GREAT ride!
