Welcome to Smith's Spotlight!
Welcome 5th graders! My name is Troy Smith and I am excited to be joining Meadowlark this year and will be your teacher! This is my 14th year of teaching, which includes 7 years at the 5th grade. I truly enjoy 5th grade and look forward to all the learning and fun we will have!
I grew up in Hutchinson, KS and graduated from Hutchinson High School. I attended Sterling College and played baseball there for 4 years.
I truly enjoy time with my family. I got married last year. My wife, Jill, has an 8 year old. Alex loves to read and enjoys learning math. I have two sons, Jared and Mason. Jared will attend Butler Community College on a band scholarship this fall. While Mason will be a sophomore at Maize High School.
This summer we spent numerous nights watching Mason and Alex play baseball.. We also enjoyed a family vacation to Washington, D.C. We had a great time walking to all the monuments and the Capitol. We also took time to see most of the Smithsonian museums and George Washington’s home.
I am truly excited to learn and grow with you this year!
