Hello! My name is Kimberly Henderson and am a Special Education teacher at DA Smith Middle School. I have a BS degree in English from Florida Southern College and a Masters Degree in Teaching from the University of South Florida. I was born in Tampa, Florida and taught in the Hillsborough County Public School system in Tampa for 23 years before coming to Alabama.
In my classroom is our School Facility Dog, Cassie! I applied for, and was awarded, a facility dog from Service Dogs Alabama. Cassie is a 5 year old black lab mix who will be at school every day to assist our students. Please welcome Cassie to our DA Smith Family! We look forward to a great and exciting year.
