Mrs. Dashunda Joseph


Hello Smith Family and Friends!

The 2017-18 school year marks my first year as an educator at Smith Elementary, and I am excited to play a part in serving your students this year! I will serve your students in the areas of English Language Arts & Reading (ELAR) and Social Studies.

Prior to becoming a teacher, I served as an Instructional Aide for four years with the Duncanville ISD, and have served as a Special Education teacher for the last seven years, in grades PK-8. I am firm but fair, and truly believe that partnering with parents is vital for the success of our students. When given the opportunity, ALL students have the ability to increase in knowledge, and therefore move forward towards successful postsecondary lives.

This year, I commit to building positive relationships with your families, and to help ensure that our students adopt a growth mindset for improving their academic outlook, and social skills development!
