Jackie Smith

Jackie Smith, Asst Youngest Group Teacher, has been an Agassiz parent, grandparent, and teacher during her twenty-plus years at Agassiz. “It’s a fun place to work,” she laughs. “We play all day. What could be better?”

As a person who enjoys nature, Jackie appreciates Agassiz’s outdoor emphasis. “It’s great that we take the kids outside every day. The fresh air is good for them and keeps us all sane.” She also enjoys “meeting so many interesting people” sharing that she’s made many close friends at Agassiz. But her very favorite part? “The children, and the hugs. Yeah, I definitely love the hugs the most.”
