Tracy Kukuk Smith, Principal
I am truly honored to be given the opportunity to become a part of the Falcon Family and am looking forward to the new responsibilities entrusted to me as your principal.
As a second generation educator, I have had the pleasure of working in the field of education for the past 28 years in a variety of capacities. I started my career in Maryland and taught third, fourth, and fifth grades prior to moving to Arizona. Since moving to Arizona I have worked in Gilbert as a teacher and as an administrator. I taught second and fourth grade at Ashland Ranch for fourteen years and then taught seventh and eighth grade English at South Valley Junior for five years. Since moving into administration I've served as the Dean of Students at Ashland Ranch, Meridian, Global Academy, and Desert Ridge Junior, and most recently as the assistant principal at Greenfield Elementary.
Becoming an administrator was a dream of mine. I watched my mother successfully serve as a principal for 20 years in Maryland and I knew I wanted to move into administration. I want to help carry on the tradition of fostering relationships with students, staff, and parents that will last a lifetime and lead a school where all students achieve success.
On a personal note, I have two children that fill my heart with joy. Both of my children are products of Gilbert Public Schools from preschool through high school.
Finley Farms is known for its educational excellence and family atmosphere. I look forward to working with the staff and community to continue this legacy of success. I’m eager to get to know and build relationships with the students, staff, and community at the Farm.
