Welcome to Ms. Smith’s Class!
Hello and welcome to 7th Grade! My name is Sylver Smith and I will be your child’s 7th Grade Case Manager/Resource Teacher for this school year. This is my second year working for the Homewood School District, but I have been working in education for 6 years. I received my Bachelor’s degree from Northern Illinois University, a Master’s in School Counseling, and a second Master’s in Special Education both from Purdue University. As a case manager, I will provide the support and assistance to support your child so that he/she will have a beneficial and prosperous learning experience. I collaborate with the classroom teachers to support students and to help them understand learning material taught in the classroom, influence completion of assignments, help prepare for tests, and provide accommodations to support students in the learning process. I will also be teaching core classes for some of the students. My goal is to help students grow academically, socially, and emotionally. I believe in the quote, “Communication is key”, and by achieving this together we can help your child succeed.
We are going to have an awesome school year!
Ms. Sylver Smith
