Get to Know Your Principal: Mrs. Smith!


My name is Amanda Smith!  I am blessed to be the principal at El Capitan Elementary School!  I have been a part of the Roswell Independent School District for 15 years, with many years in the classroom as a teacher!  I am married to an amazing man Patrick Smith, and have two sons!  I look forward to getting to know the El Capitan families!


 Get to Know Your Assistant Principal: Mr. Manual Garcia! 

I began education when I was in the New Mexico National Guard, which I served 8 years in the 90s. Presently, I have a lovely wife and two girls--25 and 26 years old. I also have two grandchildren: a little girl, Berlin, who is 3 and a half years old and a grandson, Blane, who is almost 2. I have taught in the Roswell Independent School District for about 26 years now. I have taught regular education from second grade to sixth grade. I also taught in the middle schools as a science teacher.  My specialty areas have been resource, life skills, and autism. Last fall semester I was an IEP specialist and then became an assistant principal last December for Berrendo Elementary and Washington Avenue. This will be my first full year here at El Capitan, which I really am blessed to be at this assignment.
