About

Ms. Kyndra Archenbronn loves teaching at Piedmont International University because of the interaction with her students. The family atmosphere on campus and the heart for missions is what drew her to PIU after serving on the mission field for four years as a missionary teacher in Fort Francis, Canada and then Togo, West Africa. For the past 11 years, she has had the privilege of teaching several education and literature classes to upper classmen and English Composition II to all freshmen at PIU. She is loved by her students. On her course evaluations, students have said, “She has a great desire for us to do well in our writing and does whatever it takes to ensure our success,” and many others have said, “She is very helpful and an awesome teacher!” Besides teaching, Ms. Smith has led several teacher training workshops for middle and high school English teachers, with topics such as “Composition’s Tar Baby” and “Grammar: To Be or Not To Be.” During the summers she loves to travel and has even taught overseas: teaching English in China three different summers and two times at PIU's branch campus in Bangladesh.
