Hello. My name is Lori Schmutz and I am teaching 7th grade Language Arts and Reading this 20-21 school year. I am in my 32nd year of teaching, with the current year being my 19th year at PCMS.
I graduated from Bowling Green State University where I earned my Bachelor of Science degree in Special Education, and Nova Southeastern University where I earned my Master of Science degree in Family Support Services.
The thing I like best about teaching is seeing non-motivated readers get excited about books and reading. Reading will open a whole new world for them. They just need to get hooked.
In my spare time, I enjoy reading, baking, and spending time with my family. I have one son who graduated from PCHS in 2020. I am looking forward to a successful year and to seeing my students become successful readers.
My schedule is as follows:
Periods 1-2 7th grade Language Arts/Reading
Periods 3-4 7th grade Language Arts/Reading
Periods 5-6 7th grade Language Arts/Reading
Period 7 Planning
I am available before and after school by appointment.
