• Lauren Dotson- Speech and Theatre Teacher

    Hello Everyone!


    My name is Lauren Dotson. I am the Speech and Theater teacher at Smithton Middle School. I enjoy working with children and helping them reach for the stars both on stage and in the classroom.  I believe every child should be valued and treated with respect.  An educator should empower a child and help him or her make a positive contribution to our world.  

    I am a native of Columbia.  In 2000 I graduated from Hickman High School.  Go Kewpies! I attended Missouri State University in Springfield, MO.  In 2005 I graduated from there with a B.S. in Speech and Theatre Education.  I have my Masters in Curriculum Instruction with an emphasis on Educational Technology.  I hope to spread my joy of Speech and Theatre to each student who walks through my door. 

    I look forward to getting to know all of you this school year!
