Dear White Oak Families,
Warm greetings as we embark on the 2023-2024 school year journey! I'm genuinely
excited about partnering with you to create a year rich in growth, interaction, and
As we step into this new school year, I reflect on a thirteen-year educational journey.
Starting with a Bachelor's degree in Mathematics and Business Administration from
California State University of San Bernardino, I embraced teaching wholeheartedly. This
path led me to earn a Master's degree in Education Administration from Fort Hays
College, propelling me to the role of middle school assistant principal. Currently, I'm
pursuing a doctorate in Educational Organization at Grand Canyon University.
Education's paramount importance, especially during formative elementary years,
compels me to invite you to partner with us in nurturing student success. For our
students, each day is an opportunity for learning, personal growth, lasting memories,
I eagerly anticipate connecting with each of you. Let's unite to infuse this school year
with learning, shared laughter, lasting memories, and transformative growth.
Nicole S. Smith
Your Proud Principal
