There are a lot of great things about Jada Pinkett Smith – she’s a great actress, with a great husband, great kids, and she’s even in a band. But did you know she was also a TEACHER? Says Yahoo!,

Jada Pinkett Smith is adding another title to her resume: schoolmaster.

The 37-year-old actress-producer-musician and her husband, Will Smith, opened the New Village Leadership Academy last fall. The private school, for pre-kindergarten through sixth grade, has 60 students, according to the Web site.

Pinkett Smith hopes to open a companion campus for upper grades.

“My plan is to eventually have a high school,” Pinkett Smith said. “I’m keeping my fingers crossed. I’m just trying to make it through this year.”

Pinkett Smith, who is set to star in and executive produce a new series on TNT, said she decided to open the elementary school after creating a home-school program for her children, 10-year-old Jaden and 8-year-old Willow.

Despite raised eyebrows at the couple’s religion, the school is not related to Scientology.
