Nancy Fahey Smith is a professional teacher turned trainer with 23 years’ experience in teaching, training, and curriculum development in schools and the courts. She strives to provide training and education that provokes critical thinking and provides concrete skills practice. Nancy joined the superior court in Tucson, Arizona in January 2013 as the field trainer and is responsible for training in the limited jurisdiction courts in her county. She worked in judicial education at the Washington State AOC, where she organized education for justices, judges, county clerks, court administrators, and new court staff.

For this reason, she developed her class on Due Process for Court Employees.
