Dr. Tracy Platt
I just finished my 17th year in the Smithville R-II School District and I am proud to be a Smithville Warrior! I absolutely love my job and I am incredibly grateful every day for the ability to work within a community that values education. I have three children. Jake is in his final year of college at the University of Missouri Kansas City and Riley will begin his final year at Mizzou. My youngest, Madi, will start her sophomore year at Smithville High School. We also have a dog named Cocoa. I love learning, teaching, mentoring, and supporting others to be the best they can be.
I started my career teaching elementary school. I have taught grades Kindergarten through 5th grade. I was an assistant principal and principal K-5 and chose to move to the high school for the 2016-2017 school year where I was an assistant principal and Director of our alternative program. This will be my fourth year as principal of Smithville High School and I am eager to get going! I am looking forward to our theme this year "Be the ONE" as we work through new normals and provide the best possible experiences for our students. I am grateful to have the opportunity to partner with families and our community as we begin this new school year to prepare our students for a successful future.
I am the Principal for Smithville High School, Supporter of ALL Students and Staff who loves life and leading. Be a Warrior, Be the ONE!!
