Mrs. Jennifer V. Smith

While I graduated from Alvin High School, I am a loyal Manvel Maverick. 
This is my 12th year at MHS, and my teaching assignment for 2018-2019 is English IV all day. 
ENGLISH IV provides British literature and traditions as the reading selections in which to sharpen vocabulary, grammar conventions, reading, writing, research, media, and critical thinking skills necessary for college and/or career. In addition, my classes will be exploring graphic novels as a genre and reading chapters from a non-fiction text about practical "adulting" skills as part of two grants aimed at increasing reader engagement and 21st century skills within our content area. 
On a personal note, My husband of 30 years, Coach Smith, is MHS's Head Tennis coach and teaches Health and Adaptive PE.  We have three kids: Sheridan (29), Conner (27), and Ivan (23). We filled our empty nest with three joys: Roscoe (Bulldog, 3), Howie (Boston Terrier, 3), and Buttercup (Bulldog 1.5) . I enjoy reading, coffee, and laughing with my family and friends.
I look forward to another great year of teaching and learning.
