Laurie Smithson, Math Department

My name is Laurie Smithson and I have been here at Central since we opened in 2010!  I moved to TN from Atlanta, GA where I taught for 7 years. This will be the start of my 24th year teaching! I also taught at Oakland High School for 5 years and Smyrna for a 1/2 of a year when I first moved here. 
I have been married for 21 years and have 3 children.  Brooke (18) who just graduated from CMS in 2021, Lara (17) a current Junior at CMS, and my son Luke (14) a Freshman at Oakland High.  I graduated from Auburn University, however, I have my Master's from Florida State University and my Educational Specialists Degree from Carson-Newman!  ALWAYS A TRUE TIGER!!! :)
