HCS in the Governor's Teacher Network


Mattamuskeet Elementary School teacher, Mrs. Paige Smith, joins the NC Governor's Teacher Network

The Governor’s Network Teachers were selected through a rigorous application process.  Teachers submitted resumes and a proposal for their project based on needs within their schools/districts.  Teachers will receive specialized training related to their projects, and support from NCDPI staff over the course of the year.  Beginning in summer 2014, these teachers will serve for one year developing projects that support key RttT initiatives (professional development and digital instructional resources for Home Base) in their schools and districts. Network teachers will remain in their current roles, but will also design and deliver individual projects that address needs in the classroom, school or LEA level.  These projects will fit within one of two pathways including Professional Development or Instructional Units.  Paige Smith will be completing her project in the area of Professional Development. She is researching the effects of Interactive Math Notebooks on third grade student achievement.  She will also look at the effects of these notebooks on parent support of students with homework.  Through this pathway she will create professional development sessions and materials (face-to-face, webinars and online modules) to address classroom instructional needs and increase the PD offerings in the state-wide Professional Development system in Home Base.  Mrs. Smith is excited about researching her topic and collecting data to determine if this is a strategy that will prove beneficial to our students, parents, and teachers.

Mrs. Smith is the daughter of the Shirlyn and the former Herbert Brickhouse. Mrs. Smith graduated from Mattamuskeet High School in 1988. She then pursued a bachelor’s degree in elementary education after her internship at Bath Elementary she graduated in 1997. At that time Mrs. Smith was hired by the Hyde County Board of Education to teach at Davis Elementary School. When Davis and O.A. Peay merged for the 99-00 school year Mrs. Smith was transferred to Mattamuskeet Elementary School. In 2003 Mrs. Smith received her master’s degree from ECU in Elementary Education and later received her National Board Certification in 2006. During her tenure with Hyde County Schools Mrs. Smith has served as a teacher, coach, mentor, and she has supervised student teachers.
