Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Linda Smith
After graduating from Fairhope High School, I earned a BA in history, with minor concentrations in English, speech & theatre from The University of Alabama. I earned an MA from UA in Secondary Education with a history concentration. After teaching middle school history and literature for 11 years, I returned to the University of South Alabama to obtain gifted certification and moved into the GEP classroom ten years ago. Based at Fairhope Intermediate School, I serve the 6th grade gifted students there on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. On Mondays I am at WJ Carroll and on Fridays I serve the gifted at Summerdale. The Pirate Patch garden is an outdoor classroom at FIS and I teach a Junior Master Gardener curriculum to 6th grade students during their enrichment.
