Professional profile

Jonathan Smith joined the faculty in the College of Arts and Sciences as an adjunct professor in the fall of 2016 and is now an assistant professor teaching scientific literacy. While earning his D.C. degree at Life West Chiropractic College in California, he began tutoring large volumes of fellow students in the most challenging scientific courses offered at that school. Prior to chiropractic college, he studied sciences at Mount Royal University in Calgary, Canada, later completing his Bachelor of Science degree at Lynn University, majoring in biology.

Jonathan also currently practices chiropractic medicine part-time and has previously worked as an intern in the Life West Health Center managing hundreds of patient visits.

Prior to his education, Jonathan worked for 12 years in retail management with Blockbuster Video. In his time with the company he received countless training and education seminars on business acumen, marketing, merchandising, team building, sales, financial analysis, loss prevention, and human resources. His final job description included being an operations specialist for the district. The job required him to assess the operations of underperforming locations, formulate a plan to correct the major areas of deficiency, and implement that plan.

Teaching philosophy

Jonathan’s teaching philosophy centers around making any knowledge gained in the classroom both usable and tangible for the students. He believes that understanding and learning new information is only part of the learning experience, and that the other more important part is teaching students to be able to practically apply that knowledge to all areas of their life. Jonathan also believes that learning does not end when the student leaves his classroom or finishes their degree, but rather continues as a lifelong process that never ends. His goal is to provide students with the tools necessary to continue teaching themselves new things long after they have left Lynn University.
