Mrs. Garth Smith
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 13 1/2 years and I LOVE it here! This sweet little school is where my teaching career began in December of 2004 and it is where I hope to retire. :) 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 have been happily married to Jeremy Smith for 15 years and we have three beautiful children, Gabi (11), Drew (8), and Lily (5). We have 2 dogs, Cocoa (Teacup Chihuahua and Max (mixed breed). On the weekends you can find us riding bikes, playing outside, watching our favorite movies, at church or just hanging out as a family!
