Ms. Smith

Ms. Smith teaches 7th and 8th graders preparing them for college and career readiness in multiple ways. She is absolutely excited to continue her adventure teaching the AVID® elective this school year and to have the opportunity to teach a class solely dedicated to Wilson's Just Words® reading. The sky is the limit! This will be her sixteenth year teaching at Willis. Junior high is truly the most remarkable age for change. Parents, students, and teachers each have a role in helping these young minds become respectable citizens and responsible adults.

 Educators should continue their education for as long as they teach to remain current with ideologies and trends. Ms. Smith incorporates technology and many programs, she has been trained in, into her teaching such as AVID®, Wilson Reading Systems®, Read 180®, System 44®, Scholastic Highpoint®, iReady®, Waggle® and Strategies from KU. Her teaching style also incorporates all modalities of learning and her goal is to allow all students opportunities for success.
This year is the best yet!
