Degrees and Certifications:
Mr. Barry Smith
I have been teaching for eight years, and I am constantly learning as a teacher and student. After spending over 10 years active duty in the Navy, I earned my Bachelors degree in Marketing from Augusta University. My career in the corporate was successful, but I desired to do something more meaningful and decided to pursue a career in education. I spent my first five years at Burke County High School and two years at Glenn Hills High School. I didn't think twice about accepting the position at the Early College Academy, as I am a graduate of A.R. Johnson.
My door is open for parents and students to discuss any matters, and you can usually catch me at after school events such sporting events. I even try to patronize a student's place of employment if they have a job. I am actively in a Graduate program in order to better equip myself for my career and the various changes in our society in order help my students become successful in and out of the classroom.
