Mr. Smith

Welcome to the Nest, Hawks! I am Mr. Smith. I am proud to support your educational experience as Assistant Principal. While I work primarily with Middle School students, I enjoy supporting our Elementary Hawks as well. My background is in K-12 Special Education (Behavior Support) and K-12 Physical Education. I've lived in several states and cities but after beginning my career in Florida, I moved back to North Carolina. I've taught both PE and Special Education Classes (CCR and BST). In Wake County, I taught Special Education at Oberlin Middle. I served as a Behavior Support Teacher and Administrative Team Intern. After graduating with my Master's in School Administration, I moved to Johnston County. I spent 8 years in Johnston County as a building-level administrator for both Middle and High schools at McGee's Middle School and West Johnston High School. I am dedicated to provided inclusive environments that create opportunities for engagement by all students. My wife is a dentist/dental surgeon in the Raleigh-Durham area. We enjoy spending time with our daughters, local family, and friends. We enjoy traveling and trying new restaurants. I also collect sneakers and enjoy talking with students about fashion, entrepreneurship, and sports.
