Mrs. Erika Smith
The 2018-19 school year is Ms. Smith's 27th year in education and her 19th year as a school counselor. Mrs. Smith began her career as a second grade teacher in Richmond County and then taught second grade an additional four years in Medina, Ohio. Once her Masters degree was complete, Mrs. Smith spent four more years in Medina as an elementary school counsleor. After her husband's job brought her family back to South Carolina, Mrs. Smith spent two years as the counselor at Leavelle McCampbell Middle School and this is her 13th year as the Jefferson Elementary School counsleor.
Mrs. Smith has one daughter, Danielle, who is a graduate of the University of South Carolina (GO GAMECOCKS!) and a son, Clayton, who is a sophomore at USC. She enjoys spending time with her husband and children and loves to read whenever she has a chance! Her crazy dog, Tucker, is also a highlight of her days.
