    My name is Mr. Jordan Smith, and I've been with Columbia Public Schools since 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. I graduated Hickman High School in 2007, and Columbia is what I call home. I received my undergraduate degree in both Middle and Secondary education from The University of Missouri, and then proceeded to a Masters degree in the Fellows Program from MU in 2013. I've taught a myriad of English courses, from grade 8 - 12. 
    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. Recently I have found a love for graphic novels and nonfiction dealing with the social issues. I love Columbia for its art scene and I love attending Roots, Blues and Barbecue, True/False Film Festival and other activities in and around Downtown. It's great to be a part of history being made a Battle High, and I look forward to the years ahead.
