Lakin Smith

3K Teacher 332-4991


I am currently in my first-year teaching 6th grade English and World History and Elementary Handwriting at Thomas Hart. My husband Jamie and I, along with our two children, Laila (10) and Gavin (7) moved to Darlington County last year. My husband grew up here, and after he served 12 years in the Marine Corps, we decided this is where we wanted to raise our kids. One visit to Thomas Hart and my kids became Hornets. We fell in love with the nurturing and loving atmosphere, teachers, and students of THA. After staying home with my two kids I worked as an Autism shadow last year here at Thomas Hart.


I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education from Liberty University, and I am currently pursuing a master’s degree in Curriculum and Instruction in Early Childhood Education. When I’m not working or taking classes I enjoy watching my kids play sports, reading, and spending time outdoors. I enjoy working with kids of any age, but my heart has always been with the preschoolers. I am very excited to have the opportunity to be apart of Thomas Hart’s new preschool program.
