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.
