Zach Smith

My name is Zach Smith. I am blessed to be the husband of Dorothy Smith and the father of Grace and Amy Smith. I work at Lincoln Elementary School in Sanger as a special day class teacher for students with various support needs. I love Jesus because He first loved me and I am delighted, challenged, tested, and free to get to know Him more each day. I love the gospel because it is the only hope I have for a relationship with a holy and loving God.
