Beth Smiley » Welcome!


I am the supervisor for the ACCESS program.  I am entering my third year with TSD and before becoming a Supervisor, I was the Lead Teacher for the ACCESS program.  Before arriving to TSD, I was in Phoenix as a Transition Specialist for Phoenix Day School for the Deaf for 6 years as well as an instructional aide for 4 years for the same site.
I received my B.A. degree in Integrative Studies with a minor in Elementary Education from Arizona State University. Then I received my M.S. in Deaf Education from Idaho State University.  
I am from Illinois (graduated from Illinois School for the Deaf) and have lived in multiple places:  Illinois (Chicago area), Texas (El Paso and Austin), Utah (Sandy), New York (Rochester) and Arizona (Phoenix).  I foresee that I will be staying put in Austin for a very long time.
During my spare time, I love spending time with my precious son doing water activities to keep ourselves cool.  We also love to travel, play games, go for Sushi and go to the movies.  
For questions about the program, please do not hesitate to contact me:
