Kym Smythe: Let’s get this party started!
Kym Smythe is our communicator and connection-maker in our homeschool community! (In other words: She makes the parties happen!)
Kym’s passion for people and ability to look on the bright side make her Spanish, career exploration and leadership classes at Mt Sophia Academy as much fun as the homeschool choir she directed for years for Tri-State Homeschool Network.
She holds a BA from La Salle University in Spanish Education and International Business, and an M.Ed. from the University of Vermont in Higher Education and Student Affairs Administration. In the interest of keeping things diverse in her life, Kym is also an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant, and a Seeing-Eye Puppy Raiser; she has run a Family Daycare in her home, and served as Director of Youth Ministries for her church for three years.
She and her husband Doug have four kids (including one set of identical twins), and their homeschooling family graduated the youngest kids in 2015. Kym embodies compassion and service; if someone is in need, she comes alongside immediately. The down-side to this quality is that she often struggles with time-management and organization, which makes her passionate about working alongside others to stay accountable in reaching life-management goals.
She may not be able to find an empty space on her calendar, but the one thing Kym can always find is the confetti!
