Hi there! My name is Don Smith. My education has been a mixture of traditional course work and real-life work experience. My traditional course work was achieved at Gadsden High School, Gadsden State Community College, Jacksonville State University, and the University of Alabama. I earned a bachelor degree in education from Jacksonville State University. I earned a masters, educational specialist, and doctorate degrees in educational leadership from the University of Alabama. My real-life work experience consists of 22 years of work for the Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company. 

I am married to Rebecca Skipper Smith who is an elementary school teacher at Hokes Bluff Elementary. We have two sons, a daughter-in-law and three wonderful grandsons. 

I teach the older men’s Sunday School Class at my Church, North Glencoe Baptist and I also serve as a deacon. Some of my hobbies include restoring vintage automobiles and carpentry work. 

I love children and I love seeing them learn. My goal in teaching is to open up all the opportunities available to each child while caring for them as individuals.
