Jessie Smith

Jessie Smith is a mother of four and has home educated her children since they could toddle. She holds a B.A. in Christian Education from Louisiana College in Pineville, LA. She plans to graduate from the CiRCE’s Gulf Coast Apprenticeship in 2022. She is entering into her second year of teaching online. 

Jessie missed reading great books as a child, but she is steadily catching up as an adult. Among her favorite stories are fairy tales and fables. Though there seems to be darkness all around, there is always light to be found. When she is not teaching or reading, she can be found cultivating her garden while taking great pleasure in watching her plants grow.

Recently my husband and I purchased 35 acres of land. Most of the land is wooded, but around the woods paths cut into the landscape. I adore walking down these trails. Every time I visit I look to see what new wonders can be found. Are there fresh animal tracks today? Can I detect remnants of our neighbor, Mr. Bunny? I look for freshly ripened dewberries and observe the wildflowers cloaking the trails. Most of all, I bask in the growth of the plants: ostrich ferns, hydrangea bushes, fig-trees, and pear trees, to name a few.
