Jennifer Smith

Kindergarten Teacher

Jennifer Smith Bio

Welcome and Hello! My name is Jennifer Smith, and I will be your child’s kindergarten teacher this year. I am eager to get to know your child. Here are some things to help you get to know me a little better. I was born and raised in Plano, Texas. I attended Texas Tech University for my undergraduate work where I received two bachelor of science degrees in Human Development and Family Studies with a specialization in Early Childhood. In addition, I also earned a Masters degree in Elementary Education from Texas Tech University.
My family is very important to me. I have a loving husband named Derek Smith. He is an active supporter of education. Derek is also a Texas Tech graduate, so we love to cheer for the Red Raiders. We have two little ones who have taught us more about love than we ever knew was possible. We have a daughter, Maddie and we also have a son, Hudson.

. They are among my treasured blessings that have made me such a wiser teacher. My other baby is our sweet fur baby, Buddy. He is our sweet Goldendoodle.
I feel privileged to be your child’s teacher. Your child is the future and shaping the future is my passion! It is my sincere hope that as partners in education we will have a successful school year.
