Hello my name is Linda Smith, Ph.D.


I am the REACH-Gifted Education Specialist for the Riverview Gardens School District. 


I graduated from the University of Mo St. Louis with a Bachelor's of Science Degree in Special and Elementary Education.  I also earned a Master's Degree in Special Education and Administration Certification from the University of Mo. St. Louis.  I earned Gifted Certification from Maryville University and a Doctorate of Philosophy Degree from Saint Louis University. 


I have over 23 years of experience in the fields of Gifted, Special, and Elementary Education, 14 of those years have been in The Riverview Gardens School District.


The REACH Staff has been working diligently to plan an exciting curriculum for our students.  Students will spend the next several months researching, exploring, using critical thinking skills, focusing on creative writing and drawing, teaming, building, working on projects, presenting, and college and career planning.  We are looking forward to challenging each student to maximize his/her strengths and explore various topics. 


REACH is committed to fostering growth, broadening knowledge base, and providing tools to become lifelong learners.
