My name is Jean Smith. I am a wife, mother of 4, grandmother of 2, and 20 year veteran educator. I have been teaching since the late 90's, which means I have been in education long enough to see programs come and go and come again under a new name.
My teaching experience is in all grades K-6, as either a classroom teacher or reading interventionist. I have spent the last 3 years as a literacy and social studies instructional coach.
My passion is supporting teachers on their journey of raising student achievement. It is important to teach our children how to collaborate, communicate, think critically, and be creative. Teachers must incorporate these skills into their every day. Engaging students in these areas will lead to greater success.
We are all leaders - Tell someone who has affected your life in a positive way that they are a leader and they matter.
