Mrs. Smith

My name is Jeannie Smith. I grew up in Florida and Louisiana. I love all things ocean, southern and creole. I am married with 3 children. I have two dogs, Wrigley and Carmen. They are pretty much my children too. I adore making memories with my family. When I was a child, I wanted to be many things. I wanted to be a marine biologist, an oceanographer, an actress and even a pediatric nurse. At one point in my life, I was brave enough to desire to swim with sharks. I am so thankful I chose to become an educator instead. I love what I do. I earned my degree at William Carey College in Hattiesburg, MS. This will be my 22nd year teaching. I have coached teachers,  taught Pre-K 4, Kindergarten, first, second, and K-5 intervention. I began my teaching experience in MS and then continued it in LA. I have been teaching in NC for 15 years now. This will be my 13th year teaching at NFP. I taught second grade for ten years here and am now an interventionist and a part of the Instructional Core Team. This school is my HOME! I love it here, and I am positive you will too! Outside of school I enjoy crafting, dancing, cooking, traveling, watching movies, spending time with friends and being outdoors. I can't wait to get to know your child and embark on this amazing learning journey together. Welcome to North Forest Pines! We are so glad you have decided to join our FAMILY.
