Lauren Smith is in her seventh year of teaching. She taught for two years at Amarillo High in Amarillo, TX, and is in her fifth year as the choir director at Rockwall-Heath High School where she also directs Infiniti, a mixed a cappella ensemble and Beyond, an all-female a cappella ensemble. Infiniti and Beyond have both competed at ICHSA. Infiniti placed 3rd in quarterfinals in 2019 and in 2020 received first at quarterfinals and third at semifinals. Beyond is in their second year of being a group and they are so excited to continue their a cappella journey.
Lauren has directed six choirs at Heath and grown the program from 90 to nearly 250 students in 2021 and is looking forward to more growth and learning as the years go on. She got her degree in vocal music education at Oklahoma Christian University. She lives in Forney with her husband, Thomas, who is also a choir director, and two children Fletcher and Finley.
