Faye's Word Basket
          Julia Faye Dockery Smith, a native of Alabama, attended local public schools in Tuscaloosa. She completed her undergraduate degree at the University of Montevallo, receiving a degree in education with an English major. She received her master’s degree in education with an emphasis on reading from Colorado State University.

          After beginning her teaching career in various high schools in Florida, she married a journalist and took several years’ hiatus to raise three children. She returned to the classroom in Colorado and completed her 35 years of teaching in Georgia classrooms.

          She and her husband, Jim, currently live in Florida with two of their three children and all five of their grandchildren. Their third child lives in Texas. Faye and Jim enjoy travelling, writing, research, and most of all family. 

           She began her writing career in the 7th grade when she won a writing contest. On stage to accept her reward, $25.00, she was asked if she wanted to say anything. She replied, "Someday I will write a book."  There was probably a lot of twittering from her fellow students, but so she has.
