Ms. Alene Smith
Welcome, I am Alene Smith, World History teacher at Shortridge High School. I am excited to be a part of the IB family. After 25 plus years in the classroom, IB is a wonderful challenge for me as a teacher and for the scholars in our classes. A life long native of Indiana, I attended Purdue University and received a BA in Social Studies Education. I later received a Masters in Education from Indiana Wesleyan. I am active in the National Education Association and recently served on the national board of directors. I enjoy talking to and working with our state and local representatives on education issues. I work with scholars after school on a variety of social justice issues.
