I can not tell you in just a few words how wonderful Beth Smith is not only as a person to work with but also as a human being. She goes out of her way to help people learn how to enhance their productivity without working harder and has an easy manner that is helpful when you are to trying to develop a better working group. She takes on extra work in order to help those around her and is always smiling. She will help you if you are having a bad day either taking some of the load or just making you laugh so that you get through it. I would work with or for her in any situation that she would want because she is the best.

Beth has done an excellent job with the staff evaluation process; she implemented a Professional Growth Plan that has set the standard for these plans throughout the district. As the administrator in charge of discipline, she deals daily with staff, students, and the community. She is one of the most thorough administrators I have seen when it comes to interpreting and understanding district and state policies. She is respectful but consistent with the rules and procedures of the district. Beth is always researching and finding the latest information for educational trends. She attends grade level meetings and contributes to the culture of the team. She is an expert in the field of technology, and has given in-services on podcasting and using technology to instruct. She is extremely resourceful, and is not afraid to ask for assistance or seek help when she needs it.

Beth handled student discipline, organized a process to improve the discipline procedures, studied and interpreted student achievement data, created "A Data Picture of Our School" to make data accessible for decision-makers, and assisted with other assistant principal duties. I am impressed with her calm demeanor, reliability, and consistency, and unfailingly positive attitude.

Mrs. Smith was chosen to be a presenter at the New Mexico Middle School Conference. Her presentation received high praise from educators from around the state. Beth has the ability to challenge her students and motivate them to reach and achieve those challenges. Perhaps the best recommendation I can give Mrs. Smith is to say that, "Beth Smith is the kind of teacher I would want teaching my children."
