I am Laura Smith. I am married to Robert Smith, also a part of the Hornet Nation. I am entering my 24th year in public education. This is my fourth year in Miller Grove. I enjoy reading, animals and spending time with our grandchildren. 

I love education, getting students excited about learning, and helping them to understand the connection between what they are learning and the real world. I am a firm believer of the Growth Mindset because mistakes are the only way we learn and grow, and we all make mistakes as humans. Mistakes and challenges are opportunities for learning, growth, and success.    


I teach 7th and 8th Grade science, 7th and 8th Grade reading,  and Principles of Engineering. I am one of the 7th Grade class sponsors, and one of the High School and Junior High Robotics team sponsors.
