Laurel Smith holds a Bachelor of Music Education and taught for ten years in the public school system, and has over fifteen years experience as homeschool instructor in the areas of English, history, and other subjects within the humanities. She is a homeschool mom of four and has extensive experience working with students with learning challenges.
Mrs. Smith’s teaching style is hands-on and interactive. She enjoys creating lessons that are both informative and engaging. If you peek in her class, you might find her dressed as an historical or literary figure. Students will be analyzing original documents, participating in games or simulations, or presenting projects. As long as we are learning, we might as well have fun doing it!
