    Introducing Sabrina Smith

    Marshfield’s newest cat-loving English teacher

    This year, we’ve seen a lot of new faces in our staff including Sabrina Smith, a first year teacher. She teaches English 2 and English 3. Smith went to Willard High School before becoming an undergraduate student at Missouri State University, majoring in English Education. 

    She was inspired by her own English teacher, Mrs. Chelsea Russell-Ice.

    She was the type of teacher that inspired her students to push themselves to do their best and go beyond. I wanted the next generation of citizens and community members to reach success and not have to struggle in life like my own family had to. I wanted to be someone who made a difference in young people’s lives just like Mrs. Russell-Ice did for me and so many other students,” Smith said. 

    Smith chose to teach at Marshfield specifically because she had a friend become a student teacher here and was told they were looking to hire new teachers. She also heard they had a great English department. The four-day weeks were a factor that made Smith excited to join the Marshfield team. She was also excited about the extracurricular and academic programs that Marshfield has to offer and says the supportive parents and administrators at Marshfield were also deciding factors in her decision to come here.

    As for personal life, Smith lives in Springfield with her husband, Micah Smith, and her three cats: Mango, Jax, and Sushi. She grew up in Oklahoma for years, until eventually moving back to Marshfield in eighth grade. In her free time, she roller skates, plays video games and bakes pastries like cookies and cupcakes. Her favorite bands are My Chemical Romance and Last Dinosaurs. Smith also wanted to include that when she was a kid her favorite game was “Lego Batman” on the PlayStation 2.

    “Marshfield is a smaller school and allows teachers more freedom to be creative and try new things in the curriculum so it is more authentic and engaging for students while still providing meaningful and rich learning. I can already say I love teaching my students at Marshfield High School!”
