Welcome to J.R. Smith Elementary School and to Mrs. Iordachescu's Home Page. I am currently the Teacher on Special Assignment. I have the exciting job of mentoring our intern teachers, student teachers, and practicum students. In addition to those responsibilities, I have the opportunity to support student behavior. This is a part of my job that I find especially meaningful. I truly believe that every student can reach their potential in a safe and caring environment.
I also love working with and supporting the other amazing faculty members at J.R. Smith Elementary School. Before working in this position I taught 1st grade. Four of those years were spent as the English side of our Spanish Dual Immersion program. Our teachers exemplify the J.R. Smith Pathfinder by identifying essential learning goals and teaching with best practices. We learn together through experience and study. I am so excited to be a part of J.R. Smith Elementary School.
Outside of school, I love to spend time with my family. My husband owns a local auto collision repair shop in town and often knows more people than I do. I have 5 children and 1 adorable grandson. Being with them is like a deep breath of fresh air. I love to read, garden, and being outdoors. I especially love children and teaching. J.R. Smith Elementary is like a second home to me.
