Mrs. Joelie McCrary
My name is Mrs. McCrary.
I enjoy spending time with my family and taking my kids to the park. My husband and I like finding local restaurants that serve dishes from around the world and trying new foods. I'm passionate about history and helping students view the past through multiple lenses. I find 20th Century America most interesting as well as how the American narrative affects all cultures and ethnicities.
I attended the University of Missouri - Columbia and graduated in 2013 with a degree in Secondary Social Studies Education. After graduation, I started teaching at Smithville High School. Having had teachers and coaches who cared deeply about me, I knew I wanted to be that person for others.
I have taught many different social studies courses during my time in the district - Psychology, AP Psychology, Civics, American History, and Contemporary Issues.
This year I will teach American History and AP Psychology.
My Warrior Time class will be with 9th-grade students who will START STRONG!
This year I am looking forward to meeting my new students and helping them get excited about social studies!
