Mrs. Leigh Casey - Early Childhood Teacher

I began my Early Childhood career in West Tn. Where I served 4 years. I am beginning my 3rd year with Smithville as an Early Childhood teacher. I truly enjoy helping our youngest of learners find themselves in this big, big world. My husband and I are blessed to have a son, Noah, who is entering 3rd grade.  We value family time and outdoor activities. My personal teacher motto is: If it isn’t good enough for my son it isn’t good enough for those I serve.

Mrs. Mary Veselic
I began my career in the state schools for one year. I then worked in the geriatric rehabilitation setting for 7 years before moving to the school setting which is where my passion and heart lie. I work towards improving the communication skills of all kids so they can achieve success in their daily lives and be whatever they want when they grow up! My husband and I, along with our two daughters, live in the Smithville community.
