Greeting from my family to yours! My name is Shante Smedley, owner of Promise Kids Learning Academy, and I am honored and grateful to have this opportunity to care for young children. My family and I are excited to embark on this journey and can’t wait to see what the future holds. Our dream has been to guide young minds in a positive direction that fosters individuality and reaching their highest potential. Owning a child care center has allowed us to do just that and we cherish every moment.
I am a graduate from the University of Houston with a Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Engineering Technology. After graduation, I worked for Hewlett-Packard before pursuing what I loved, educating young minds. I started my professional career in education in 2005 as a middle school ELA and Mathematics teacher while specializing in special education and English as a second language. After teaching for a few years, I earned a Master’s of Administration in Education and obtained my principal certification both from Lamar University. Outside of teaching, I have been an elementary mathematics and science Curriculum Instructional Specialist in Galveston County and Instructional Coach for Fort Bend ISD in the Curriculum and Instruction Department for Secondary Mathematics.
A little about my family…
My husband, Maceo, and I have two wonderful sons, Maceo III and David, who both attend school in Fort Bend ISD. Maceo III has had an acting career since the age of 4 and can now be seen on Underground, Marvel’s Cloak and Dagger, Netflix Original All About the Washington’s and featured film Noelle.
I am a member of The National Association for Education of Young Children (NAEYC), National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM), and National Association of Elementary School Principals (NAESP). These organizations are dedicated in supporting and assisting educators with improving education and ensuring success for all students academically and socially.
