Matthew Smith

I received my B.S. in Psychology from Brigham Young University.  After graduation I went to Taiwan and taught English as a second language to Chinese students aged two to ten for five years.  Upon returning to the US, I began working as an archaeologist for the next 15 years.  I began doing field work, but soon started drawing field maps and doing GIS using AutoCAD and ArcGIS.  During this time I also was a crew chief and worked with surveying equipment.  In 2015 I changed careers and became an English language Arts teacher at Mesa View Middle School in Farmington, NM.  I am just beginning my third year of teaching (2017), and although I am still learning so much in my new career, I am very excited to begin flipping my classes.
