Ms. Linda Stanford


I have been a 7th grade Social Studies teacher at Smithfield Middle School for 18 years. This school year will be year 19! My husband and I live in Apex with our two English Springer Spaniel dogs, Madison and Jackson. I am originally from Georgia but my husband and I have lived in North Carolina for 20 years. Before settling here, we lived in several different places around the United States including Wisconsin, Minnesota, Vermont and California. However, North Carolina was where we chose to settle down and make our home. I really enjoy teaching Social Studies and I love being a part of the SmMS Knights family!

  •  Welcome!                                               Bienvenidos

      I am delighted to be your teacher of Social Studies / World History 

    for the 7th grade at the great Smithfield Middle School!

    We have so much to learn about this school year!!

    Smithfield Middle School will be using Google Classroom as the way for

    students to access communications from their teachers and their assignments

    for each subject.  ALL students who have me, Linda Stanford, as your 7th

    Once school begins on Monday, August 17, I will have virtual office hours

    from 9:20 - 10:05 a.m. During that time, I will be available for students or

    parents / guardians to contact me with any questions, concerns or issues

    that you may have. It might be a question about our Social Studies class,

    it could be an issue with technology, maybe you need help

    on one of our assignments, or you have questions about a project we are

    working on.  But this time, 9:20 - 10:05, is dedicated time for me to be

    available to my students.
