Mr. Timothy Smith

Hello! This is my 11th year at Renaissance High School and my 14th year working with young people. I have taught a number of different classes at RHS, including Honors English 9, Spanish 1-5, IB Spanish Ab initio AB & CD, IB Spanish Standard Level I & II, IB Spanish High Level I & II, IB Personal and Professional Skills I & II, and Academic Decathlon. I have also coached Drag Racing, Speech and Debate, and currently coach Academic Decathlon.

I started my career in education working with 7th and 8th grade English Language learners at Judkins Middle School as well as adult English Language Learners at Cuesta Community College. Before I came to Renaissance High School I ran youth and adult trail crews in Idaho, Oregon, and Washington. The youth crews programs focused on high school credit recovery, teaching work ethic, and land stewardship.

In our free my wife (also a teacher) and I enjoy hiking with our dogs, camping, reading, gardening, and playing board games.

Office Hours: Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays 2:20-3:20.
