My name is Jessica Bhatt Smylie, but students and families simply know me as Mrs. Smylie. It is an honor to be here at LJM this year and join the Second Grade Team! Prior to this, I taught for five years in Temecula- one year as a K/1 combo teacher and four years in first grade. It brings me so much joy to work with young people each day, learn about their unique talents and interests, and share the magic of learning with them.
It is my mission to instill a love of learning within my students and to create a classroom community that welcomes and embraces each unique learner. In our class, we will collaborate, have fun together, and work hard to do all things with H.E.A.R.T!
When I’m not teaching, my favorite thing to do is spend time with my husband and our two year old son. We love playing outside, and we especially enjoy beach days with family.
I look forward to working with you to make this year meaningful and memorable for your child. I consider it a special gift to spend each school year with amazing young people. Thank you so much for sharing yours with me!
