About Deandra Smith: Text

Growing up as a preacher’s kid, or "PK," my siblings and I attended church nearly every time the doors were open. As a matter of fact, some of my most memorable experiences in the church included participating in Vacation Bible School (VBS) and other educational enrichment programs throughout the school year. It is here where my love for learning was further developed. 

As the founder of Believers Education Collaborative, LLC, my ultimate goal is to use the unique gifts that God has given me to be the solution that we as the body of Christ are looking for–to provide biblically-based, quality educational services and resources for middle and high school youth, their parents, and youth ministry leaders, and to do it all for the glory of God! Because God has already provided everything that we need in life, instead of looking at the world to define what student success should look like for believers, we need to look to Christ, and that's what we aim to do!

With over 10 years of experience mentoring, advising, and coaching students, I have the expertise to guide your youth as they seek to thrive and keep God first in their educational journey. Please know that your child's success is my success.

Oh, and one last thing about my credentials in case you were wondering. Earlier in my introduction, I mentioned the degrees that I earned, but didn't tell you where I went to school. I earned a B.S. in Early Childhood Education from the illustrious University of Central Florida, and an M.A. in Higher Education from the distinguished University of Arizona.


Hmm. What other things might you want to know about me? My family and I live in Alexandria, VA, and I enjoy spending quality time with my family and friends. I love to read and exercise, was a huge band geek in school, and I love the Lord with all of my heart!


And I'll throw this fun fact in for free: I can name all 66 books of the Bible in 30 seconds! Whew!
