This is my 5th school year at Sheridan Green Elementary and 8th school year as a School Social Worker. I am at Sheridan Green on Thursdays, Fridays, and alternating Wednesdays. I am so grateful to be in this role of supporting students, teachers, families, and the entire Sheridan Green community!

My favorite part of my job is working with students to help them gain skills to feel a sense of emotional control, self-regulation, and overall happiness in their lives.

When I'm not at school, I enjoy spending time with my husband, toddler, dog, friends, and family. I love to travel, practice yoga, adventure outside and in the mountains, garden and cook. In the summers I work as a director for Camp Comfort, which is an amazing camp for grieving children. Our family is also excited to share that we'll be welcoming our second baby in November 2021!

SPED Learning:

Hello, I'm the shortest one in the photo of my lovely family that has recently been expanding!  Most of you may recognize me since I've been working at Sheridan Green as a Paraprofessional for many years.  My two "little" girls attended Sheridan Green for all of their elementary years, and I got my start here as many of you have, by being a parent volunteer.  This year I have a new position as a Learning Specialist paired with two schools, and I am thrilled that Sheridan Green is one of them so that I will still be working with this wonderful community that I have been a part of for so long.  Besides teaching, I love my family, reading and baking.  I am a Colorado native and earned my degree in Special Education and Psychology at Loretto Heights College.  I am so looking forward to seeing our students' faces again, however that might look this year.

Lori SmithMy name is Lori Smith and I am the Instructional Coach at Sheridan Green Elementary.

I am a Jeffco native with over 20 years of experience in education. I hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Behavioral Science with a minor in Reading and a Master’s Degree of Science in Education. My teaching experience includes several years in Kindergarten through 2nd Grade. I also worked at the district level for five years to support school administrators with instruction and evaluation of instruction.

My role as an Instructional Coach includes classroom support and mentoring teachers. I also work extensively with data for the school and students. As a specialist in instruction and curriculum, I work closely with teachers to plan lessons and deliver best practices to meet the needs of our students. Additionally, I also strive to work as a catalyst for change and as a school improvement leader to consistently bring about the next best steps for our teachers and students.

In my time outside of school, I love to spend it with my wonderful, supportive husband, Kevin, of 28 years and my daughters, Brooke and Macy. We have a large family that we thoroughly enjoy too. As a family, we enjoy camping, hiking, and traveling.

I love my job here at Sheridan Green and look forward to working with our teachers and students everyday!
