• Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year! 


    Dr. Smoak's Virtual Classroom

    My name is Dr. Amanda Smoak and I teach 7th grade math.  I am so excited and honored to be your child’s seventh grade math teacher. This is my seventh year at Wren Middle School and I am so excited to be here again this year.  I have completed nineteen years of teaching, all in the state of South Carolina, with fifteen of those years at the middle school level. 

     I am originally from Anderson, South Carolina. I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Early Childhood/Elementary Education North Greenville University and my Master’s Degree in Secondary  Mathematics  Education from the University of South Carolina. I graduated from the University of South Carolina with a Doctor of Education in Curriculum and Instruction in August of 2017.

    Even though I have two earned degrees from USC, my husband and I are both avid Clemson fans.  I am married to Benjamin Smoak and we have two precious children.  Our son, Andrew, is 12 years old and is in 7th grade this year.  Our daughter, Kaylee, is 9 years old and is in 4th grade.

    I am very excited to get to know you and your child.  I am looking forward to a happy and productive school year.  I am very passionate about mathematics but I am even more passionate about student learning.  My goal is to prepare students for success in 8th grade, high school mathematics, and ultimately beyond high school.

    I intend to make learning about math a positive experience for your child and I ask that you help me by supporting your child at home.  I encourage you to contact me if you have any questions or concerns at any time. I believe communication between parents and teachers is the key to a successful year.  I am looking forward to a fantastic year!
