ALL ABOUT ME:
Hi! My name is Jennifer Smith. Welcome to 2nd Grade! I have been teaching for 21 years (20 here at Brookwood). I earned my degree in Elementary Education from Augusta University, and a degree in Interrelated Resource from Georgia Southern University. I also hold a Masters in Learning Disabilities, and I am an endorsed teacher of Gifted children. I am currently working on my Math Endorsement. Most importantly, I love teaching all my students!!! I am married to a wonderful husband, have 4 boys, 1 dog, and 2 cats. I love reading!!! We enjoy spending time together at our beach house!
I was honored to be selected as Brookwood's 2012-2013 Teacher of the Year.
My Teaching Philosophy:
My teaching philosophy is simple: Encourage, Engage, and Enrich. I believe students learn best in a positive, motivating, safe, structured, and fun classroom designed just for them! As a teacher, I strive to engage students in their own learning process. It is important to focus on individual learning styles, strengths, and challenge beyond the comfort zone. We build relationships, and we celebrate each success. A strong connection between teacher and parent(s) further enriches the learning experience.
