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.
