Jerod Smith

Physical Education Teacher
Platte County High School


My name is Jerod Smith, and I began my teaching career in 2005, teaching physical education. My journey in education has taken me through Hardin Central C-2 and Northwest Missouri State University as a student, and the Lawson School District as a teacher and coach.

I am excited to start a new journey in education and coaching at Platte County R-3 High School as a physical education teacher, football coach, and track & field coach. I have a passion for creating and implementing high-quality physical education for my students and community. Every day I strive to create curriculum that includes lessons and activities that inspire students to want to move, play, and believe in themselves. My goal as a physical educator is to help influence my students to have an internal desire to be healthy individuals now and the rest of their lives.

I look forward to a great school year with the students and staff at PCHS.
