Jill Lay, Literacy Specialist
As a literacy specialist at Ann Smith Elementary, it is my privilege to work with an amazing group of teachers, administrators, parents and the best students around. In my 13 years as an educator, I have taught kindergarten, first grade and second grade in Mississippi and Florida. I am thrilled to be a Titan for a third year!
I am a graduate of Belhaven University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Elementary Education with endorsements in Remedial Reading and History. In 2012, I earned my Master of Educational Leadership from Mississippi College.
Reading is a huge part of my life and I have found cultivating a love of reading in our students to be the most rewarding part of my career. I am blessed to have the opportunity to do that everyday for our students at Ann Smith Elementary.
