All About Us/Contact Information
Hi, my name is Jennifer Smith.
I am excited to be your child's new teacher. I look forward to working with your child and your family. I have been working with young children for eight years. I strive to make our world a better place with the support of my colleagues. It brings me joy to watch a child learn something new.

College(s) attended/Degree(s)

In 2009 I graduated from Rowan Cabarrus Community College with my two year associates degree. In 2011 I received my Bachelor of Arts in Education degree in Birth-Kindergarten at Catawba College.

Educational Philosophy/Vision

My Philosophy is to encourage children to learn to their fullest potential. I believe that every child is special in their own way. I will support each child to have a better understanding about how to be respectful of others and work as a team. Our children are our future and I will provide a nurturing environment for every child to grow and learn.
 I encourage our families to read to your child at home every day. Children learn so much from book readings.
Please feel free to call me  at 704- 932-7433 if you have any questions. McKnight Child Development Center will give our staff and your family an opportunity to grow through your child's learning experiences.
