Mrs. Joan R. Smith
My name is Joan Smith. I was born in New York and moved to Florida where I lived for almost 20 years. I met my husband Jeremy there and we moved to Jackson, AL where his family is from. In my 3rd grade class when I was just 9 years old I had a teacher who greatly impacted my life and made me want to become a teacher. Thanks to her and others in my family, I pursued my dream and began teaching in 2004. I feel like this is exactly where God would have me and thank Him for blessing me with a family at home and here at JIS. I enjoy spending time with my family, working in the children's ministry at other churches around the southeast, cooking, crafting, playing my ukuele, singing, the beach and shopping with my girls!
