Biography

Hello everyone, I’m Douglas Smith the traveling Visual Arts Specialist for J.G. Masters Elementary School. For the last few years I have been teaching at Masters, but I also have several years of experience teaching Art at both McMillan Magnet Middle School, and Omaha North High Magnet School. As well as teaching, I also work as a professional artist with specialties in wheel thrown and hand-built ceramics, illustration, and painted public murals. My weekly teaching schedule is equally split between J.G. Masters Elementary and Adams Elementary School.

My wife, Crystal, is a Speech/Language Pathologist working for a local rehabilitation center. She and I are proud parents of six wonderful children, 3 boys and 3 girls, with ages ranging from 20 to 11. The Smith family loves spending time with our dog, Bailey, and being outdoors. We garden, go camping, travel, hike, watch movies, and hang out with our friends and with neighbors.
