    Assistant Principal - Rachael Marchetti -
    It is such a privilege to be in the Warrior Family! I am thrilled to be in this journey with the dedicated staff at Smithville Middle School, as well as the enthusiastic students and hard working parents.   Being a part of a team of educators with a clear vision is what I enjoy most about my profession.

    I have been in education for 19 years, in the roles of classroom teacher as well as guidance counselor as well as my most recent and current role of assistant principal. I have worked with so many wonderful people, many of whom have been integral in getting me to where I am today.

    My husband Tony and I have been married for 16 years, and live in Smithville with our 2 daughters, Mia – age 13 and Mattie – age 10.  Both girls attend Smithville Schools, I am proud to call them Warriors.

    I look forward to continue to learn about and work with many of you as well as doing my part to continue to the custom that is established here in Smithville of, “Tradition, Compassion & Pride.” Please do not hesitate to contact me at or call our office at 816-532-1122.

    Go Warriors!
