Trojan Nation is proud to announce Nikki Smith as a new addition in the math department. She says she enjoys teaching Algebra I and II and working with the kids. She realized she enjoyed teaching while coaching diving during summer break from college. She stated, “I knew I wanted to work with kids…there is not a better feeling in the world, than when one of your students has that “AHAA” moment.” Therefore, she changed her major from business to math education. She graduated from Auburn University with a Math Education Degree.
Luckily, she was able to transfer from West View Middle to West High because she enjoys challenging herself and the kids. Outside of work, Smith enjoys her dog Maddox and her cat Lucky. She also loves the opportunity to travel and see new places.
Students take the opportunity to welcome Smith into the Trojan Nation and make her feel at home.
