Mrs. Smart

I am lucky enough to have spent my whole teaching career at Indian Prairie! I started teaching here in the winter of 1999, taking over for a maternity leave. Fortunately for me, this part time gig turned into something more. I have been here ever since as the full time PE teacher. I couldn’t ask for a better place to spend my days. I absolutely love my job! Who wouldn’t want to run and play with kids everyday?! I like to think that PE is the highlight of the student’s week.


I graduated in 1999 from Northern Illinois University with my degree in PE and a minor in Sports Medicine. Shortly after that, I started working on my master’s degree in Health Education. I received my master’s degree, also from NIU, in 2003. My life before having my own children stayed busy with taking classes to further my education.  


I have three children. My oldest is a 7th grader at Lundahl, and my other two children attend Indian Prairie. I spend my free time watching my own kid's sporting events and I also dabble in photography. I love pizza, things that smell good, being warm, and a beautiful day!
