Degrees and Certifications:
Mr. Hunter Smith
Ladies and Gentlemen,
I am honored to be your son or daughters 8th Grade Georgia Studies teacher for the 2019-2020 school year. I am entering my first full year of teaching after graduating from Georgia Southern this past May. I am not a traditional teacher, having previously served in the United States Army on both Active Duty and as a Reservist for what will be 7 years in April 2020. I joined the U.S Army immediately upon graduating from high school and have served both across the nation and the world with some of the best men and women our country has to offer. It was during my deployment to the Middle East in 2015 supporting the fight against ISIS that I first discovered my love for teaching while leading training for both U.S and coalition soldiers. After returning to the US and leaving active duty, I chose to continue to serve my country as a teacher of our nations future leaders.
I am orginally from Blairsville, Georgia, nestled in the Appalachain Mountains at the northeast corner of our state. I first came to coastal Georgia when I was stationed at Fort Stewart in 2014. I fell in love with the area and upon leaving active duty I chose to attend Georgia Southern University in Statesboro. I hold a Bachelor's Degree in Middle Grades Education and am certified to teach both social studies and science. I have served as team leader, vehicle commander and lastly was in the top of my class in the U.S Army Chemical, Biological, Radiological Warfare School in Fort Leonardwood, Missouri. I am proud to have and still continue to serve a CBRN recon soldier with mulitple awards and a tour in the Middle East.
In addition to my teaching duties, I have the honor of being the assistant coach for the Ebenezer Middle School Football Team under Coach Bringer. Having played football in both highschool and college, it is an honor and a pleasure to work alongside the motivated and hardworking young men on our football team. I look forward to an amazing year here at EMS and I hope this gives you a better picture of who I am. If you ever have questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact me via email and I will get back to you as soon as possible.
