Mitch Smith (Teacher Mitch)

Date of hire: August 2015

My favorite children's book/story:

Caps for Sale, The Kissing Hand, Owl Moon, the Frog & Toad series and the Elephant & Piggy books by Mo Willems

Fun facts about me:

I was born and raised in Los Altos. I am a father of two daughters, one of whom (the youngest) went to the Children’s Center. I enjoy mountain biking, fishing and activities with my family.

What do you love the most about teaching/working with little ones?

I was offered a position when we enrolled our youngest daughter in the 3’s program. I thought what a great way to be another part of her life. Little did I know that I would enjoy it as much as I do. The interaction with the children is so much fun and rewarding.

From your perspective, what makes the Children's Center so special?

The sense of community here at the Children’s Center really makes it special.
