Ms. Schmutz

Hello.  My name is Lori Schmutz and I am teaching 7th grade Language Arts and Reading this 18-19 school year.  I am in my  30th year of teaching, with the current year being my 17th 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 a son who is a junior at PCHS and is playing basketball this year.  I look forward to watching him play this season.  Go Pirates!

I am looking forward to a successful year and to seeing my students become successful readers.

    Periods 1-2      7th grade Language Arts/Reading block

    Period 3           Planning

    Periods 4-5      7th grade Language Arts/Reading block
