Hello! My name is Mrs. Cheryl M. Smiley, and I have the privilege to teach at L. A. Morgan Elementary School – the ‘school where college begins’. I believe that goals for life and living well are formed in a child at an early age, this age! My personal goal each year is to help each student prepare for the future by building a strong academic foundation in Reading and Language Arts.
Each year promises to be an adventure in learning as we enter the exciting world of fine literature using the Balanced Literacy Model for Reading and Writing. The many tasks along this journey require active participation from three (3) important members of each child’s educational partnership. The members are the parent, the student, and me. Equality and accountability in this partnership requires that EVERY member actively fulfills ALL assigned responsibilities at ALL times, without exception. My motto for years has been and continues to be, “Learning is not for any particular test but for life!”
