Welcome Scholars and Parents to Mr. Smith's PE class for secondary scholars. I am very excited to be working with the JAA Scholars and Parents to make Physical Education exciting, fun, informative and provide a wide variety of activities that provide the scholars to be able to lead a healthy and happy lifestyle.
I was born and raised in Montana, I then moved to Rapid City, South Dakota and taught Physical Education/Health and was an athletic director and coach for over 30 years before moving to California 5 years ago. I have three adult children. My daughter Jordan (27), lives in Pennsylvania where she is a journalist and writes for Runners World Magazine, my son Trevor (23) is currently working in South Dakota and my daughter Sydney (21) is attending Grand Canyon College in Phoenix, AZ.
My Educational background includes earning my Bachelor of Science Degree in Physical Education/Health and History from Western Montana College. I received my Masters Degree in Curriculum and Instruction from South Dakota State University.
It is my honor and privilege to be teaching Physical Education and the Athletic Director at John Adams Academy-El Dorado Hills.
