Mrs. Karlyn Smith
My name is Karlyn Smith. I live in Griffin, Georgia with my husband of nearly 23 years and my 18 year old beautiful, autistic daughter. The 2022/2023 school year is my 32nd year of teaching, however it is my fourth year here at Jackson Elementary. My first 28 years were spent in Henry County. I will be teaching pre-kindergarten this year with my paraprofessional, Mrs. Stacie Dudley, and I am very excited about it.
I earned my A.A. in Education from Gordon Jr. College, my B.S. in Early Childhood Education from Georgia Southern University, and my Masters Degree in Early Childhood from Piedmont College.
I love Jackson, Georgia. I love the small town feel and the closeness of the families. I love Jackson Elementary and everyone who works here. I am very excited to see how my students will grow and I am looking forward to a wonderful year.
