Mr. Smith is the Instructional Assistant assigned to our Junior High 2 classroom. He has been volunteering with Third Academy for the past few years, helping with mountain climbing and other field trips, as well as helping in the classroom. His approach to assisting students is to heal the heart first. Students first, academics second.
“It is important and most helpful to really get to know each student so that I can help them with specific strategies and information that interests them,” explains Mr. Smith.
Junior High is where his interests are and he is happy to be working with Grade 8 and 9 students there this year. Outside of school he loves to spend time with his six-month old son Lincoln and showing him to be awesome. He also has a beautiful wife whom he loves and does everything with. 3D printing and digital design take up the rest of his time at home.
