Mr. Jeff Smith
Hi! This is my 11th year in Prosper and 25th year teaching overall. In my teaching past, I taught 6th grade science (13 years) and 7th grade science (9 years). This will be my 3rd year taking on Outdoor Ed. and the 2nd year that I'll be teaching Eagle Leadership and the tennis team PE class.
I am married with 3 kids. My wife's name is Kelly and she owns her own chiropractic office in The Colony. She has been practicing there for 25 years. Both of my sons graduated form Prosper High School. My oldest son Kade is a senior at Texas A & M (he marches with the Corp). He won state in band as a senior at PHS and his picture is on a banner on the side of PHS by the auditorium - a great accomplishment! My other son Jack is a sophomore at A&M as an engineering student. Our youngest family member is Lainey - she is in 4th grade at Folsom. She runs the family!
In addition to my teaching duties, I coach tennis (combined 7th and 8th grade team) during the spring. We are in a district with McKinney and Highland Park. I have been coaching tennis since I arrived in Prosper and have coached tennis previously in another district too. When not coaching or playing tennis, I enjoy playing golf, traveling, visiting family (often in Nebraska where I grew up), going to movies and hanging out by the pool.
Lastly, I am the Recycle Club sponsor. Hug a tree!
