Hello Parents and Students!
My name is Mrs. Garth Smith and I am the Library Media Specialist at Swift School. I earned my Bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education at the University of Mobile in 2005 and then my Master's degree in Educational Media (formerly Library Science) at the University of South Alabama in 2009. I recently completed my K-12 Leadership Certification from the University of South Alabama and hope to one day become a school principal. I have been teaching at Swift School for almost 12 years and LOVE it here! This sweet little school is where my teaching career began in December of 2004 and it is where I plan to retire, hopefully many years from now. :) I began team-teaching in 2nd and 3rd grades and then switched to Kindergarten in the fall of 2006. I taught Kindergarten for 8 1/2 years and moved to the library on February 2, 2015.
I am married to Jeremy Smith and we have three beautiful children, Gabi, Drew, and Lily. We have 2 small dogs, Hushpuppy and Cocoa. On the weekends you can find us watching movies, hanging out at the local park, soccer field or basketball court, and attending 3Circle Church in Fairhope.
