Skylar Smith, Black Hills State University
My name is Skylar Smith and I am the president of the Black Hills State University chapter of the South Dakota Education Association. I am a K-12 Special Education and Spanish Education major with a minor in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages. I joined in my first year of college for additional training to become an effective teacher. The best part of joining SDEA has been the professional development I have received, such as on differentiation. I am excited to continue volunteering in the community and collaborate with members at the local and state level.
