Mrs. Bethany Jones
I am an exceptional children's teacher at Smithfield-Selma High School. I have worked here at SSS as a Life Skills teacher since 2004.
In our class we work hard to promote independence and relevant learning. We focus on functional academics--a lovely mix of age appropriate curriculum and skills to provide practical application of everyday life. To do this, students are responsible for making coffee for staff each day and lunch each week. Students go to Walmart to purchase items to continue the project. Field trips are important for students to practice the lessons they've learned. Throughout the school year there will be opportunities for community outings.

While face masks are still required in all of our indoor facilities, students, staff, and guests of our campuses are no longer required to wear a face covering when outdoors. Students and staff may continue to wear masks when participating in recess or outdoor activities if they choose to do so.
