Warrior Shout-Out: Being in special education can take a lot out of you everyday. She never shows that, the way she approaches everyday is just amazing. You can say so much about her and that won’t be enough. She’s a great teacher and leader for the team. Can’t find a better person for the ultimate warrior!

Warrior Shout Out: "Connor is his second year of teaching.  In his first two years, he has been dealt with some major stresses due to having to step in for me with some of my health struggles.  Last year, he had to take over the Wind Ensemble for MSHSAA State with only four rehearsals to do it in.  Last month, he had to again conduct the Wind Ensemble for a concert when I had COVID, he did this with one rehearsal the day of the concert!!  He has been doing all of this with grace, professionalism, skill, and passion for the students successes.  We are very fortunate to have him in our program, school district, and community.

Warrior Shout-Out: Mrs Uptegrove is an amazingly gifted teacher and brings years of experience as well as passion and insight into teaching our youngest students. She carefully plans lessons, worksheets, activities and crafts to enhance and reinforce learning. She also introduces content that goes beyond the basic pre-k level giving students a chance to excel according to their level. Her classroom management provides organization and structure to the daily routine. And on top of all this, she is a caring, open-minded, creative and considerate co-worker. Our district is better because of her wealth of talent and expertise.

Warrior Shout-Out: Aimee is the most selfless caring individual I have met.  She always meets students where they are and responds with a gentle heart.  Students are comfortable going to her with their problems and they know she will not judge them.  I am very fortunate to have her to brainstorm thoughts and ideas off of and know a solution will happen.  Aimee is a champion for all!

Yesterday was an incredible day at the Missouri State Capitol! So proud to share some snapshots from the day's event, where our talented cadet teachers showcased their passion for education during the Missouri School Board Association Student Advocacy Day. 🍎 They shared their journey as teaching interns with visitors from all corners of the state, leaving a lasting impression on everyone they met. Shoutout to Representatives Josh Hurlbert and Chris Brown for taking the time to engage with our cadet teachers. These confident leaders did an outstanding job representing the Smithville School District. Keep shining bright! πŸ’«

This Way Back When-sday takes us back to the 2005 baseball field. Despite being a team with a lot of young players, they proved that they shouldn't be counted out during the District playoffs when they upset second seed Kearney. Who do you remember from the team?
