Greetings William Beanes Families,

It is an honor to introduce myself as your newly appointed principal of William Beanes Elementary School and join a school community that has H.E.A.R.T. I come with my 24th year in education, where I have served as a Special Education classroom teacher, a Reading Specialist, a School-based Test Coordinator, a mentor teacher, and for the past 7 years as an Assistant Principal.

I originally hail from northern New Jersey. I am the youngest of three children, a mother, and grandmother. I come from a family of educators and basketball players. I have been a resident of Maryland for the past 18 years where I cultivated my love for Old Bay.

I believe that all scholars have the capacity to do well in an environment with high expectations that supports the whole child. My goal this year is to ensure that scholars continue to receive quality instruction that nurtures them academically and socially.

In closing, I look forward to our first year together learning and growing with our students, staff and families.

With the H.E.A.R.T. of a Bear,

Nyree Smith
