Mr. J. D. Smith


I graduated from Saint Mary's University of Minnesota in 2017 with a Masters of Education in Teaching and Learning.

In 2015 I graduated from the University of the West Indies, Jamaica, with a Bachelors of Education in Primary Education. Prior to this I completed my teaching diploma at Bethlehem Moravian College, St. Elizabeth, Jamaica.



I am an international teacher from Jamaica who has had experiences in the field of special education and the general primary school system. These experiences have given me the opportunity to teach students from diverse backgrounds and countries, such as India, Canada and the US, from 3rd grade to 11th grade. I am very passionate about student growth, not just academically but socially, consequently, the holistic development of the learner is at the heart of what I do. With this said, we must work collaboratively to ensure that your child is performing at his or her best in all areas of school life.

Remember, Success Comes Through Effort!
