Smith

Clay Smith’s love of great literature and commitment to lifelong learning brought him to the teaching profession and to Spring Ridge Academy in 2014 after he attended the Parent Challenge and Action trainings. SRA’s philosophy of personal growth through self-knowledge, acceptance, and hard work closely mirrored his own, so he jumped at the opportunity to share his skills and enthusiasm with SRA’s remarkable students.
At SRA, Mr. Smith has designed curricula around close readings of off-the-beaten-path literature and rigorous essay crafting skills with a focus on student individuality, choice, and discovery. Mr. Smith holds a BA in English Literature from Grand Canyon University and has completed a post-baccalaureate certification program in Secondary Education.
