Mrs. Karen Smith

Welcome to 8th grade United States History! I am looking forward to an exciting and rigorous year working with you. We will continue to enhance instruction with our digital conversion, to make history come alive!  I am married with two children, my son, Brett, is 18 and my daughter, Bryn, is 5! We have two Yorkies, Chloe and Watson, as well as a Chiuhuahau named Lanie. So, we too have crazy schedules and live active lives.
 I have my BS in Business Management from Salisbury State University and my Master's in Education from UMBC. I have been teaching for 20 years, my first five years were in Anne Arundel County and the remaining 15 years have been here in Queen Anne's County. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you EVER have any questions or concerns! Thanks! 
Here is a fun and interactive site that connects to our lessons on life in the south and north with regards to slavery.
