Ms. Kristen Cole
I am the Library Media Specialist at Smiths Station Junior High School and also the assistant Pantherette Coach. This is my fourth year at SSJHS and I am super excited about the 2017-2018 school year.
I am from Opelika, Alabama. I graduated from Beauregard High School in 2002. I studied and graduated from Columbus State University in 2006 with a Bachelors Degree in Secondary Social Science Education. I began teaching in 2006 as well. I later earned my first Masters Degree from the Library Media Specialist program at the University of West Alabama. I taught History for four years before becoming a Media Specialist in 2010. I also have a Masters Degree in Educational Leadership from Lincoln Memorial University as well as my Specialist Degree in Curriculum and Instruction from LMU.
I look forward to meeting all the new student faces at SSJHS and will be happy to help when needed.
