Mrs. Jen Smith

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 that same passion in as many students as I possibly can. I believe that reading is the gateway to learning and knowledge.This year I am encouraging students to "branch out and read something new." That means moving beyond what they are comfortable with to exploring different genres, topics, and/or styles of writing. When students have courage to be adventurous, reading can really take them places!

As Dr. Seuss says, The more that you READ, the more you KNOW. The more you LEARN, the more places you'll GO!

At home I am a busy mom of five! I have three boys and two girls ranging in age from a 19-year-old graduate from Renaissance High School down to a 5th grader here at Prospect. 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 was a piano teacher while I was at home raising my kids. I love reading, playing the piano, running, sewing, and digital scrapbooking.
