Adrian Smith

Adrian has been in early childhood education since 2010 and has an associate’s degree in early childhood education. Adrian has served in many roles throughout her career, including being a teacher, director, and district director before joining The Nest Schools. Adrian loves working with children because each day is different. She loves having the opportunity to teach children new concepts and watching their faces light up when they finally get it. She also enjoys the sense of community she has from getting to know each family and child.

Adrian is engaged and has a fur baby Boston Terrier named Yoda. Adrian learned to read before starting Kindergarten and has never stopped loving to read. Her favorite childhood book is Charlotte’s Web because of the friendship and love between Wilbur and Charlotte. She loves that they could still be such great friends despite their differences.
