He is a former English teacher, athletic director, and former head football and softball coach.  Dr. Smith was born in Chicago, Il but was raised in Yazoo City Mississippi by his grandmother (Pauline Smith) and aunt (Barbett). He played college football at Alabama A&M University and received his B.S. He started his career in education after receiving his educational certification from Miles College. He continued his education and received his Masters in Education from Capella University and finally, his Doctorate in education from Northcentral University.

Dr. Smith is an avid creative thinker, reader, and writer. He enjoys working out and spending time with my family. He is blessed to be married to "the most wonderful woman in the world." They have five wonderful kids who motivate him to be better each day. Dr. Smith believes that being an 18-year educator has been a great blessing where.

He had the opportunity to assist in raising some wonderful young men and women, who have become great pillars of society. Dr. Smith's drive has always been his family. However, his motivation has been to show his students, as well as any child from his hometown, that despite your background or color, you can achieve anything. Knowing that many people will be able to relate to his experiences, he wanted to inspire people to journal their family experiences daily.

He decided to do the same and wrote his first book titled Daddy Moments: Volume 1, which is the first book of his Daddy Moments series. Daddy Moments: Volume I, “My First Year as a New Dad,” is a literary nonfiction book that follows the journal entries (most were posted on social media) as a new dad and the adventure he went through. The story highlights and positively displays the new dad struggles, growths, and typical day to day adventures from a male perspective. The book is a great piece on how to be a great dad and encourage many more to start journaling their day to day lives with their children for posterity. Daddy Moments: Volume I can be purchased on Amazon at:
