Welcome to Timberline Core! My name is Mrs. Smith and I will be teaching 7th grade Language and Literature. I recently moved into the community and this will be my first year at Westlake Middle School. I have always known I wanted to be a teacher, and I enjoy sharing my love of literature and writing with my students. I earned a B.A. degree from the University of Colorado and a M.S. Ed degree from the University of Central Oklahoma. During the last three years I taught Language Arts in another Colorado middle school and prior to that I taught 6th grade Language Arts in Oklahoma. When I'm not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my family, reading science fiction, playing fetch with my dog, Gus, watching football (go Buffs and Boltz!) and baking.
All assignments, links, videos, feedback, lessons, and everything else will be found in your student's Schoology account. I am looking forward to parterning with each student this year as they continue their educational journey.
