Welcome 8th Grade Mavericks!
My name is Kelly Smyth and I am the Dean of Students in 8th Grade here at Smart's Mill Middle School! I am beginning my 15th year in Loudoun County Public Schools, as first a teacher, then department chair and now Dean of Students for 8th grade. I hold a teaching license in K-12 Special Education (Ed, SLD, Aut) with endorsements in English, Math, Science and History. I earned my Master of Education Degree in Administration and Supervision in 2017 through Regent University of Viginia. I believe in being a lifelong learner, and am continually engaging in professional development to expand my knowledge of education and particularly, education at the middle level.
When I'm not at school, you can find me out in Western Loudoun, where I live with my husband, 4 year old daughter, Ava, and our 2 dogs. I love watching baseball (Go Yankees) and reading! We love being active and exploring new parks and hiking spots! You will frequently catch Ava here with me for after school events!
I am passionate about students and their development, especially through these critical middle school years. I believe in the education of the whole child, academically, emotionally and socially. Please feel free to reach out via email or phone anytime.
I look forward to an exciting year of growth, change and development!
