Timothy Smith

I have been in education for over 10 years. Teaching, for me, is a second career. Before, I worked as the parts salesman for Ferrara Fire Apparatus. I am a graduate of Southeastern where I earned my degree in Social Studies Education. I also studied Education Technology at Concordia University in Portland, Oregon where I earned a Master’s degree in Education. I started teaching online for an education company in 2010 then spent 1 year teaching Credit Recovery for high-school dropouts in Birmingham, Alabama. From there I moved to Vidalia, LA to continue my education career as a 6th grade teacher for three years and 8th grade teacher for four years at Vidalia Jr. High School. When the opportunity to come home to Hammond came available, I jumped at the chance to bring my unique experience to where it all began for me. My wife also teaches at Hammond Westside and together we are the proud parents of five amazing children and are proud grandparents to a precious little boy and baby girl.
