I am a second grade teacher at Sutton Elementary School, located in Fort Smith, Arkansas. It is a large school, comprised of grades Pre-K through 6th, with a little over 500 students currently enrolled.

Fort Smith is the second largest city in Arkansas and has a rich and colorful history. There are several museums located in the city that allow a person to investigate the history of Fort Smith. A picture is worth a thousand words - therefore this great video!
