Mr. Carey Samuel Smith IV

Hi, my name is Carey Smith and I am excited to be teaching 8th grade American History at Skyview Middle School. This year I look forward to utilizing over 3 decades of government service, International teaching experience, and an endorsement in Gifted Education from the Colorado Department of Education (CDE) to help students connect historical events from the past to their lives in the twenty-first century. As a teacher and husband with two children, I recognize the importance of education and academic skills in the modern world. Over the next 10 months students will learn the fascinating story of America as they develop and refine academic reading, writing, and research skills required to succeed in high school and post-secondary education. Students will learn American history by interacting with primary source materials and authentic artifacts from the era. Parents, know that when your student graduates from Skyview Middle School and enters high school next fall they will have the historical knowledge and academic skills necessary to excel at the next level.
