Ms. Schmutz

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.
