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.
My schedule is as follows:
Periods 1-2 7th grade Language Arts/Reading block
Period 3 Planning
Periods 4-5 7th grade Language Arts/Reading block
Periods 6-7 7th grade Language Arts/Reading block
I am available before and after school by appointment.
