Mrs. Stephanie Bondi-Smith




I am Mrs. Stephanie Bondi-Smith.  I am so elated to be your child's Pre-School teacher this year! I am a wife of 16 years to my husband Michael. I have been a foster mom for 5 years and have had numerous children in my home and have been blessed with the opportunity to be the adoptive momma to our sweet boys Gabriel, who is 5 and Logan, who is 4. Gabriel entered Kindergarten and Logan entered Pre-K this school year. 

I am a graduate of Purdue University with my Bachelor's in Elementary Education in 2009. And most recently, I will hold a Master's degree in special education from Purdue University in the fall. I am overjoyed to want to continue my education in to a doctorate program in the next 5 years, 

I have been teaching for 12 years, primarily in the Kindergarten-5th grade setting, so I am super excited to continue my growth as an educator with your student.


Happy Learning!


Mrs. Smith
