Welcome to Ms. Smith's Homeroom Page! I teach 7th Grade English Language Arts and Social Studies at Northern Guilford Middle School. I am a graduate of North Carolina State University with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Middle Grades Language Arts and Social Studies Education. I am very excited for this school year. The middle school years are a crucial time for self-discovery inside and outside of the classroom. I want to promote an environment in my classroom that will help ease the transition period from elementary school to high school. Each student will be challenged in their own way, in order to ensure success in both classes.
