Bret Spencer - 6th Grade Dean
This is my fourth year at Smart's Mill, and my twelth year in education. This year I am the 6th Grade Dean. In the past, I have taught Math 8; Algebra 1; Geometry; Algebra, Functions, and Data Analysis; and Algebra 2 classes.
I am originally from Elderton, Pennsylvania. I earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Secondary Education – Mathematics from the University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown. I earned my Master’s Degree in Supervision and Administration from Shenandoah University.
I have a caring wife and two daughters, ages 7 years old and 1 year old, to keep me busy at home. I am a Pittsburgh sports fan. I love to watch the Steelers, Penguins and Pirates when I have the opportunity. My family loves visiting amusement parks, playing board games, and competing at miniature golf. I live in Loudoun County now after 8 years in the Shenandoah Valley.
I hope to make this year great. My goal is to provide my students with the skills needed to succeed during school and in life. I want students to leave Smart's Mill as a creative, confident learner with problem solving and logical thinking skills that can be applied to their everyday lives. I am excited to meet my new students and anxious to start on a new journey this year.
This year I will be maintaining a website for important information regarding the 6th Grade class. It is located at the website https://sites.google.com/lcps.org/smms6thgrade.
