Mrs. Felicia Smith

Greetings! My name is Felicia Smith. I am the Education Academy teacher at Thompson High School.  I teach all four classes in the academy; Education & Training, Teaching I, Teaching II, and Education & Training Internship. And this year I am teaching a class of Family and Consumer Sciences. This is my 32nd year of teaching, but only my second full academic year at Thompson. I spent the first 29+ years  in an elementary classroom. 

After all of those years of teaching young children, I am still very passionate about teaching and learning. I am a lifelong learner! My daily goal is to create a safe and engaging environment for learning. My greatest hope for my students is to leave THS aspiring to be educators that make a difference in the lives of THEIR students. 

I have been married to Coach Marty Smith for 28 years and we have two children. Our daughter is a middle school teacher/coach and our son is a graduate student at The University of Tennessee Southern where he is working on his MBA. We have two Labs, Poppie and Daisy Mae! 

In my leisure time, I enjoy traveling, playing with our pups, watching high school and college sports, and supporting current and former students in their extracurricular activities. Additionally, we are actively involved in our church, CrossPoint.
