Home > Authors > Jackie Smith, PhD
My name is Jackie Smith and I am the principal of a small pre-school and private school in Austin, Texas. My educational background includes a B.A. in Psychology and Criminal Justice from Saint Edwards University in Austin, Texas, graduate work at Texas State University in San Marcos, Texas, a M.S. in Educational Psychology from Walden University in Minnesota, and a doctorate in Educational Psychology from Walden University.

The last mayor of Austin presented our school with an Exemplary School designation and me with an award for over thirty years of service to South Austin Youth. I teach Creative Writing as well as act as principal for our school.


When Governor Clements was in office he named a Dance Troupe I created, sponsored, and toured Russia as Official Texas Goodwill Ambassadors.


I have five published books currently and four more finished and in various stages of editing, marketing, printing.


The published works are: A memoir trilogy: “Volume I, Starting Point”, “Volume II, Moving Forward” and “Volume III, Finish Line”. I also have a literary fiction book entitled, “Once More With Feeling” and a children’s book, “The Cat Who Wanted to Fly”.


I won the 2014 Eaton Literary novel competition for a novel not released yet, “The Hourglass.”


Prior to the books I have written, I published free lance articles on education with educational journals such as Visionary Teachers.
