My name is Jackie Smith and I am so excited to join the All Saints Middle School team as one of the Language Arts teachers. My husband and I will be married ten years this winter. We have been blessed with three children: Aggie (8), Anthony (6), and Teresa (3). I love being outdoors with my family, gardening, cooking, and crafting. We have been members of All Saints Catholic Church for the past five years and we love the community. As a parishioner, I have been involved in a few ministries including: Catechesis of the Good Shepherd, EDGE, and MOMS.
Teaching youth has always been a passion of mine. In college I began teaching middle school students religion in the local parishes for their Faith Formation nights. After graduating from St. Mary’s University with my Bachelor of Arts in Literature, I completed my Masters of Instruction. I then served as the middle school religion teacher for St. Thomas More for seven years until my position was eliminated. I took it as a sign to stay home with my little ones. I am so thankful for my time with my children, but I feel called back to teaching. Middle school students hold a special place in my heart and I cannot wait to spend my days with them once more. I look forward to meeting each student and their families.
