Welcome to Mr. Smidt's English class! I am very excited to be working with you this semester.
A little bit about myself: I have lived in Coeur d'Alene since I was 5. After graduating from high school, I lived in Ecuador for two years volunteering as a missionary. When I came home, I attended BYU-Idaho and graduated magna cum laude with a degree in English education. In 2018, I completed my master's degree in educational leadership and recieved certification for school administration through the University of Idaho. This is my sixth year teaching at CHS. When I am not in the classroom, I'm usually on an adventure with my wife and our two (soon to be three) daughters. I also enjoy fly-fishing, photography, hiking, cycling, and playing the guitar.
