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 EXPLORE. DISCOVER. And READ! My goal is to inspire them to explore the library resources we have available to discover books and information they want to read.
At home I am a busy mom of five! I have three boys and two girls. My oldest two are in college, but I still have three at home... one at Rocky, one at the Idaho Fine Arts Academy, and one 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!!!
