Constance Ridley Smith

An American resident of the lovely island of Bermuda. Constance enjoys a refreshing walk on the beach and hiking nature trails; a good laugh with friends; entertaining; teapots and china; playing classical piano; and creating things. She likes to see ideas come together. She spices up the mundane with frequent travel and enjoys “bailler la Salsa.”

Constance’s professional career has been divided equally between teaching music and training/curriculum design at Detroit Public Schools, Metro Nashville Public Schools, The University of Tennessee Center for Government Training, and most recently, Bermuda College, a community college on the island of Bermuda.
