My name is Karissa Smith. I have been teaching since 2007 and have been at Cannon since 2017. I love being part of the amazing and talented staff at such a phenomenal campus! I graduated from Augsburg College in Minneapolis, Minnesota in 2006 with a bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education and a concentration in science. I moved to Texas right after I graduated from college and started teaching in Mansfield ISD in 2007. I taught 2nd and 3rd grade my first 2 years of teaching and then moved to Kindergarten where I stayed for 8 years before moving to Grapevine-Colleyville ISD in 2017. My passion for science and technology was a perfect fit for my new teaching position at Cannon Elementary. I love working at a STEM school!

I currently live in Trophy Club with my husband, Wes, and two daughters, Halle (7) and Jenna (3), and son Killian (1).
