Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Steve Smith and I am in my sixth year of teaching here at Granite Bay. I teach 9th and 10th grade PE, Athletic PE, Weight Training, and Martial Arts. I hold credentials in PE, Adapted PE, and Biology, and I have a Master's Degree in Multidisciplinary studies. I’ve been in education for 32 years and have taught PE, science, health, and I’ve been an Athletic Director, Experiential Learning Coordinator, and a Resource Specialist. Part of my career was spent teaching overseas in American International Schools. My family and I spent five years in Shanghai, China, two years in Muscat, Oman, and a year in Manama, Bahrain.
While I am passionate about physical education and teaching, I am also a dedicated coach. I have been coaching for more than thirty-five years. Most of my coaching has been football, but I’ve coached other sports as well, including boys’ and girls’ basketball.
In my down time I love to travel. I also enjoy studying Mandarin, martial arts, and strength and conditioning.
