Subjects Taught
2nd Grade

I graduated from Lincoln High School in 1988. I attended Jacksonville State University and graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education in April 1994. In December 1998, I received my Master's degree (also in Elementary Education) from Jacksonville State.

After graduating in 1994, I was hired by the Oxford City Board of Education as a fourth grade teacher. I taught fourth grade for five years. When the schools changed in 1999, I began teaching first grade. I was "promoted" with my students to second grade the following year, where I taught the same group of children. I have been teaching second grade since 2000.


Welcome! I am Shannon Watson Smith. I am originally from Lincoln, Alabama, but in 1991, I married Matt Smith and moved to Oxford. We have been married for 25 years and have two children: Piper (17) and Payton (15). We are members of the Betta View Hills Church of Christ in Oxford. I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, and going to the beach.
