Miss Keisha Smith



Welcome scholars and families! I am Ms.Smith. I am an Education Specialist working with our wonderful Educational Success Team here at Martin Luther King Jr. Junior High School. This is my first year here at MLKJJH!! Prior to becoming a TIGER, I served as a Resource Specialist for Newman Crows-Landing Unified School District for two years, and as a Special Education Teacher for a NPS for the emotionally disturbed in Merced,CA for two years. I received my A.A. in Psychology from Merced Community College, followed by a B.A. in Psychology from California State University, Stanislaus. I received my Mild/Mod credential from Teacher's College of the San Joaquin. 

As an Education Specialist, I believe that there is no "one-size fits all" approach to learning. Every scholar should have the opportunity to explore multiple learning styles. I strive to find methods for scholars to experience learning in a fun and meaningful way. I am looking forward to a wonderful school year! GO TIGERS!!

In sincerity,

Ms. Smith
