Shelley Smith

      I have been teaching since 1990.  This will be my 17th year in MISD.  I taught 8th grade ELA at MJHS for twelve years.  My secondary English/history teaching degree was earned at West Texas State University.  I did some graduate work at Texas Tech University in curriculum and instruction.  I am additionally certified in ESL and reading and graduated with my masters in library science from Sam Houston State University. This will be my fifth year as a librarian and my fourth year as the lead librarian for MISD.

       My son, Austin, is a freshman at the University of Texas.  We have one cat and huge piles of books at our house.

      Reading is absolutely one of my favorite things to do, and I want to share my love of reading with the students and teachers of MJHS. 

     Check out my book blog here: MJHS Library Blog

      I am looking forward to a great year!
