Vocal Music & General Music
My name is Teresa Smith and I am the vocal music and general music teacher here at Huron Middle School. I am also in charge of our middle school fall play. I am starting my 28th year of teaching and I have been at HMS since 1999.
On weekends, you can find me at my church where I'm the music director. I have three children. Two of them are grown and have exciting careers. My third is a student at HHS.
