Welcome!

Meet Ms. Smith

Welcome to 8th grade! My name is Emily Smith, and this is my third year at Pine Grove Middle. I am so excited for the year to come!

I was born and raised in Valdosta, GA and I am a proud alumni of Lowndes County Schools. I graduated from the University of Georgia with a bachelor's degree in Middle Grades Education with a focus on English Language Arts and Social Studies. Go Dawgs!

I love movies and music, traveling, going to Disney World, watching the Dawgs play, and spending time with my friends and family!
