My name is Rebecca Landin-Smith. I teach 1st grade at Allen Elementary. I received my bachelors at Eastern Michigan University. I received my Masters in Education from the University of Michigan.
My favorite children’s book is The Tooth Fairy Meets El Ratón Pérez by Rene Colato Lainez. This is my favorite book because it shows how characters from different cultures can cooperate to accomplish their goals. I enjoy learning about customs and traditions around the world. This author does a fantastic job sharing two traditions around the common experience of children losing their teeth. When I’m not working, I enjoy traveling, hiking and nature photography.
