 Hello! And welcome to the Web Site of Mr. Smith. Contained on this site you will find links to documents, information about the classes I teach, some useful links to other sites, and a little information about me.  Rumor has it Mr. Smith hails from the wind swept plains of eastern Nebraska.  In truth, he grew up on the mean streets of Omaha, and as such, he is a rabid Husker fan (name one that isn’t rabid, I defy you to find one).  Like many of his friends in his youth, Mr. Smith spent his time playing sports, and developing a grasp on the street lingo that makes him savvy in most any situation.  After getting Street Smart and Book Smart, Mr. Smith headed for the University of Nebraska – Lincoln.  Successively acquiring a degree (and watching a lot of football from within the glory that is Memorial Stadium), Mr. Smith set off to Kansas City to conquer the world.  Though he spent some years out of the education domain, he has been back to help shape and mold the minds of our future leaders.  Though this task is daunting, Mr. Smith feels with a little PMA (positive mental attitude) and a lot of candy and gum, he can get the job done.  Mr. Smith is a thinker, a philosopher, and a raconteur.  He is married, has two children and dog named Rudy.  He spends his free time attending various activities in which his children participate and designing and building custom furniture.  Mr. Smith also enjoys camping, fishing, and spending time with his family and friends.
