Welcome to my website, Thrifty in Third Grade! I’m Cassie Smith and I’m so glad you decided to stop by. I am passionate about creating engaging curriculum for teachers in grades K-5! I believe learning can be fun AND aligned to standards!
About me–I’m married. This is me and my husband at the Grand Canyon! (An amazing trip–go if you ever have the chance!) We have one son, who is five years old! He keeps us busy! We love to spend time outside.
I graduated from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro with a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education. Although this is when my formal teaching career began, I like to say it all started in my basement growing up where I played school with my three younger siblings! They are eight, eleven, and thirteen years younger than me, so I loved teaching them! 🙂
I started creating teaching resources several years ago in order to have resources to use in my classroom to teach the new Common Core standards. Although I love teaching, I quickly realized that creating curriculum is my true passion! I love to make teachers’ lives easier and develop curriculum that their students will enjoy.
