Our back to school countdown continues with some memories from one of our many valuable paraprofessionals!
"My name is Beth Smilack. I am a paraprofessional at JCMS working in Mrs. Heineman’s Life Basics classroom - home of some of the coolest kiddos in the school!
My fondest memories of middle school are also my favorite school memories of all because that was when I was finally starting to figure out who I was and who I wanted to be. I was finally out of elementary school, I got to change classes and make decisions on some of my electives, I had a locker for the first time and I had some very cool teachers who really took an interest in me as an individual. I remember reading a lot during that time because we had an awesome library. Those days in middle school were really what molded me into the person that I would become."
