    Experience

    I have been teaching in the Tuscaloosa County Schools for the past 21 years.  I was a student intern at Maxwell Elementary where I taught Kindergarten and 4th grade.  I was hired at Brookwood Elementary to teach 3rd grade.  I taught there for four years.  I transfered to Englewood Elementary where I taught 3rd grade also.  I moved to Taylorville Primary when the school was built and have completed several 1st to 2nd grade looping cycles.  I am currently teaching 2nd grade here at Taylorville. 

    Bio
    My name is Kim Smelley and I teach 2nd grade at Taylorville Primary.  I feel very lucky to have such a wonderful job and a great place to teach.  I have always loved children and feel very fortunate to have the opportunity to work with them each day.  I am married to my high school sweetheart, Chris Smelley, and we have three beautiful children, Sage, Colby, and Avery.  I enjoy watching my boys play all sports and Avery taking cheering and taking gymnastics, being with family and friends, shopping at the mall, going to the beach, and reading a good novel.  My favorite places to eat are Cypress Inn, Outback, and Taco Casa.  I am a Christian and I attend Valley View Baptist Church.
