Ms. S. Smith: B.Ed.
G7 & G8 Homeroom, G7-G12 English, G7 to G9 Health and Career
Ms. Smith is delighted to be joining The Glenfir School Community. After receiving her Diploma in Theatre from Capilano University (2000), she went on to complete a B.A. and Bachelor of Education from Bishops University (2006) in Sherbrooke, Quebec.
Though she has lived in many of Canada's great cities, Ms. Smith is happy to call the Okanagan her new home. She comes from a very athletic family, and enjoys taking part in a variety of sports, especially skiing and running. Before committing to a full-time teaching career, she had the opportunity to travel, and recently returned from teaching abroad in London, England.
Ms. Smith is an enthusiastic life-long learner. She firmly believes that the most meaningful learning takes place in an environment that fosters a reciprocal exchange of ideas between the teacher and her students. She is highly motivated to inspire her students to feel confident in themselves and to pursue higher academics and personal accomplishments.
