Ms. Smaka’s Lower Elementary Montessori Class

Welcome to my teacher webpage!

My name is Mary Elizabeth Smaka, although I have always been called Beth.  I grew up in Northeastern Pennsylvania, but Montana has been my home since 1992.  I love teaching, and have been at Broadwater since 2004.  I completed my Montessori certification through the Montessori Education Institute of the Pacific Northwest in 2007.  I feel very lucky to have the opportunity to bring Montessori education to the Helena Public Schools.
