I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel. - Maya Angelou

Hi! My name is Jennifer Smith. Welcome to 3rd Grade! I have been teaching for 26 years (25 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, an endorsement in Gifted Education,  and my Math Endorsement. Most importantly, I love teaching all my students!!! I am married to a wonderful husband, 4 boys, and a son to be daughter-in-law. I love reading and vanilla lattes!!! 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: Engage, Enrich and  Inspire. 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.

All emails and voicemails will be answered within a 24 hour period during schools hours. Meetings can be set up over the phone and in person before school, after school, and during my planning period (12:10-12:55).

We will also send our weekly Tuesday Memo out and post it on our website.
