Hello! My name is Jen Smith and I love being the librarian here at Prospect! I have always had a passion for children's literature and hope to encourage students to love reading as much as I do. I believe that reading is the gateway to learning and knowledge.
This year I am encouraging students to BE CURIOUS! My goal is to inspire them to ask questions and seek answers as they read. And I hope to empower them with skills to know how and where to find the information they are looking for.
Our motto is... BE CURIOUS: Have courage to ASK your own questions and SEEK your own answers!
At home I am a busy mom of five! I have three boys and two girls. My oldest is a 20-year-old graduate of Renaissance High School who is now attending BSU. I have three kids in high school at Rocky and a 6th grader at Heritage. I am also married to an awesome guy who happens to be a small business owner here in Meridian. Once upon a time, I taught 6th grade for three years, but more recently, I was a piano teacher while I stayed home raising my kids. I love reading, playing the piano, running, sewing, and making scrapbooks.
I do live in the neighborhood, so if I see you outside of school, I love it when you stop to wave or say "Hi." I'm looking forward to a great year!!!
