My name is Ali Wirth and I am in my 16th year of teaching. I taught 5th grade for a few years, but have spent the rest of my time teaching 2nd grade here at Boyd E. Smith Elementary. It is my home away from home! I am originally from the Cleveland area and came to Cincinnati to attend UC. I graduated with a degree in Communications and worked in the business world for 5 years before going back to school to get my teaching certification. I live in Miami Township with my husband Shane, my three kids Nikolas (11), Brandon (9), and Calleigh (6 going on 16), and of course my 2 cats. All of my kids now attend BES! I am an avid runner and enjoy baking, although one crosses out the significance of the other! All of my kids are involved in sports and recreation, and we spend our evenings at Findley Ray or the side of a swimming pool. I am looking forward to spending the year with your children!
