Ms. Smotzer thinks when teachers form learning communities, work together, and share ideas it benefits all. She enjoys not only helping students but also helping teachers at her school and would love to learn more ways to do so in the educational field by being a teacher leader. She also believes it’s important to never stop learning and to always have goals in which one works towards. In Ms. Smotzer’s free time she enjoys reading books for her book club. She is a lover of all books but enjoys mystery most of all. She also likes cooking new recipes and trying unusual foods. She has traveled abroad to many countries and thinks it’s important to experience different cultures. However, her most favorite thing of all is spending time with her family and friends.
