Carisa Smith, Reading Specialist
I teach reading skills in small groups of second grade students. This is my tenth year at Jenks East Elementary as a reading specialist and my thirteenth year of teaching overall. I received my Bachelor's degree in Speech and Language Pathology from Oklahoma State University and my Master's degree in Literacy and Reading from Oklahoma State University as well. I truly enjoy working at Jenks East and I especially love working with beginning readers! My goal is to encourage struggling readers and help them gain confidence in their reading abilities. It is a joy to work with young children each day and it is so exciting to see them learn new things!
