Mr. Smith's Classroom
8th Grade Social Studies and ELA
Welcome to South Carolina History and English Language Arts with Mr. Smith! I'm excited about the 2018-2019 School Year and what we will learn!
* I am from Anderson, South Carolina, and I graduated from Columbia International University with a Bachelors of Science, Brenau University with a Master of Arts in Teaching, and The University of Georgia with an Educational Specialist Degree.
*This will be my 12th year teaching school, most recently South Carolina History in Beaufort County, South Carolina. Rich in History, I'm excited to share with you stories from the lowcountry!
*I am married and have three children. Shannon (15), Sarah Grace (4), and Emma (1). My wife teaches Science and Math and has been my best friend since we met in seventh grade.
*My hobbies are reading, biking, hiking, and playing with my kids, niece, and nephew.
* When I was in eighth grade at Wren Middle, I decided that I wanted to teach eighth grade Social Studies. I still have my eighth grade notebook, and although I've traveled to sixteen different countries, have taught with and learned from phenomenal teachers all over; it was my dream to come back home to Wren Middle and teach.
I know teachers change the world, and I am excited to help you grow into who you were meant to be!
