Andrea Smith

Assistant Principal Last Name A-Ha
Staff Department

I started teaching 10 years ago and have loved every minute of being in education! The best part of being an Assistant Principal is that every day is different. I enjoy working with staff, administrators and students to build a culture that values respect, acceptance, accountability...and fun!


  • Iowa State Univeristy, Bachelor of Arts in Secondary Science E

I am originally from Iowa, but have lived in Kansas and Taiwan throughout my teaching career. I love to bike, run, and hang out with my husband and kids (who definitely keep me on my toes!). I live in Longmont and one day my kids will be Cougars!


At Niwot, I work to support students with the last names A-Ha. I am also responsible for the master schedule, Elementary Tutor Program, conference scheduling, and supporting our teachers as they inspire and educate our amazing students.
