Mr. Smith

Phys Ed

I was born and raised in Nova Scotia and attended St.FX University. I love to play all sports and games but my favorite of all is hockey! I have 4 young kids who keep me busy and active. I believe teaching children how to be active and lead a healthy lifestyle is one of the most important skills we can teach. This is my 9th year teaching with FMPSD. I previously taught physical education at Dr. Clark School and was the district APPLE Schools Health Mentor for a number of years. This is my 3rd year at Walter and Gladys Hill School teaching physical education and coaching with the PEAK Athletic Academy. In PE students will learn fundamental movement skills, teamwork and an appreciation for movement through a variety of fun individual activities, games and sports. I look forward to seeing all of our students finding the joy in being active! I am also extremely excited to be a part of the first PEAK multi sport academy that will allow students increased time to be active and receive high quality coaching in a variety of sports. Welcome to WGH PE! Let's get moving!
