Welcome to our class

My name is Joy Smith. This is my 26th year at Glenwood. I have been blessed to be at the best school in the county for so many years.

My assistant is Teresa Gouge. We have been together for 4 years. The kids and I are lucky to have her helping us. I feel we work well together and the kids love her.

Your child will have a folder that you need to look at daily. We call these "dragon folders". Please look at these daily. On the left side of the folder are items that need to be returned to school the following day. This includes the behavior report. Please look at this and initial it daily. Also this is a great place to send any message that I may need. On the right side of the folder are items that should remain at home.

My school email is joy.smith@mcdowell.k12.nc.us. Please feel free to contact me any time you have questions and concerns. I do not accept phone calls during the school day, but will return your call after the children leave. Email and letters in the dragon folder is the easiest way to get messages to me.
