    My name is Mr. Jordan Smith, and I have been with Columbia Public Schools since August 2012. I previously taught at Oakland Junior High and was then part of the inaugural staff at Muriel Williams Battle High during the 2013 opening. While I have spent a short time living in Chicago, I graduated from Hickman High School in 2007 and call Columbia my home. I received my undergraduate degree in both Middle and Secondary education from The University of Missouri in 2012, and then I proceeded to a Masters degree in the Fellows Program from MU in 2013. I've taught a myriad of English/Language Arts courses ranging from grades 6 - 12. In addition to teaching in the classroom, I run Darkroom Records, a free recording studio program for students of CPS. 
    In my personal time I enjoy exploring music, film, and literature. I've played drums since I was 11 years old and have been in a multitude of local bands over the years. I love Columbia for its constant growth and I love attending Roots, Blues and Barbecue, True/False Film Festival, and other activities in and around our community. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me with any questions, concerns, or opportunities!
