Hi, my name is Brian Smith, and I am a 2nd grade teacher. I am new to Aurora Public Schools this year. Before coming to the Edna and John W. Mosley P-8, I earned my B.A. from Metropolitan State University in Denver, Colorado. In my free time, I enjoy playing golf, tennis, and traveling whenever my schedule allows me to do so. The thing I am most excited about for the 2016-2017 school year is getting to know all the students and faculty and all the other experiences that come with a teacher’s first year! My job is to accelerate learning for every APS student, every day. I do my job by creating an environment where students believe in their true potential academically as well as socially. My community needs me to do my job.
