Mr. Jacob Smith

Hello! My name is Jacob Smith, and for the 2020-21 school year, I am teaching English 9, Honors English 9, and Honors English 10 with AP Seminar. This is my fourth year at Thompson High School, and I am excited to work with both parents and students to make this school year an overwhelming success. My teaching philosophy revolves around making sure that my students know that they are valued and are capable of greatness. I do not pull any punches, but I will always be willing to work with my students to make sure they seize every opportunity to learn and to grow. I like to keep an open dialogue, so if you would like to reach me for any reason, feel free to email me at any time. (
