Teacher Spotlight: Jaime Smialek

Our growing class list would be quite difficult to pull off without the awesome instructors we've been so honored to meet.  We'd like to give you the same opportunity to get to know our Chattery teachers a bit better. 

So, here are four questions to help get to know our Photography class instructor, Jaime Smialek. 


How'd you get started in Photography?

My Uncle Billy got me a Polaroid for Christmas when I was a kid. It was addicting and the rest is kind of history.

Why do you love Chattanooga?

I love Chattanooga because it's never quite what you expect. There's so much going on here!

What's the one topic you'd like to learn through The Chattery?

I would love to see a class on homemade cleaning supplies. My friend Kelly Smallman makes them and it's so cool!

What's something someone would be surprised to learn about you?

I lived in India in 2005 until 2006. That's right, I washed my clothes in a bucket and the whole bit!
