Keri Smith, Principal

Hello!  I'm Keri Smith and I have been New Market School’s principal since 2016.  I was the NMS assistant principal from 2005-2016 and taught 5th grade at NMS before that. After 20 years at NMS, New Market School is truly my home and I love being a part of the New Market community.

Family is extremely important to me.  I have a wonderful husband, Randy, who is an elementary teacher in Lincoln County, TN. We have three sons named Miles, Mickelson, and Marshall. Keeping up with their sports activities consumes the majority of my time when I am not working. I love sports and especially love watching my boys play baseball and basketball. I am an animal lover, but I currently just have a big fat tomcat named Milo. Mexican food is my all time favorite food, but there are not many types of food that I do not like.  I also really enjoy sweets, especially Gigi's cupcakes and Nothing Bundt Cakes.

I enjoy dressing up and having fun. Here I am dressed up like an ice cream scoop with Ms. Donna and Ms. Denise.  Mr. Barnes is the ice cream man!
