Hello, my name is Sydney Smyly, and welcome to my 6th grade class! I am looking forward to another year of teaching Language Arts, Social Studies and Academic Enrichment. I am also very excited to coach Cross Country, the 8th grade girls basketball team (A), and Track and Field this upcoming year.I am a born and raised Coeur d' Alene girl. I completed my K-12 education in this very district, and treasured the time when I myself was here at Lakes during my 6th through 8th grade years. After graduating from Lake City High School I immediately attended the University of Idaho (GO VANDALS!) where I obtained my Bachelors of Science degree in Elementary Education with an endorsement in ESL (English as a Second Language) and a certification in Middle School Language Arts. Outside of school I enjoy spending time with my family and wonderful husband.If I have one piece of advice for incoming 6th graders it is this: Get involved! Whether that be a sport (come run with me this fall!), club, band, choir, play, ANYTHING! It is such a great way to meet new people and become comfortable with your new school.Looking forward to an awesome year!Sincerely,Mrs. Smyly
