Greetings! I'm Dr. Jared Smith. I'm an educator, author, speaker, fitness enthusiast, and lifelong learner.

In 2008 I accepted my first job as a school administrator. “This leadership thing can’t be too complicated” I predicted while preparing for my new endeavor. However, it didn’t take long to discover I was in over my head. Whereas I survived four years of (mediocre) teaching through determination and perseverance, I couldn’t fake my way through supervising adults. I quickly realized if I didn’t learn how to lead, I would forever be miserable at work. 

So I went back to school to earn my superintendent’s license and PhD in educational leadership. As I progressed through my coursework, I was motivated by the results. Not only was my confidence as a leader growing, I also began to see the positive impact lifelong learning had on all aspects of my life.

After earning my doctorate, my appreciation for learning continued to evolve. By 2019 I accumulated a large amount of research and content but didn’t have a way to share my findings. I decided creating a website would allow me to share my experiences with others. 

I am excited to share my passion for lifelong learning with others!

"If you've been, or are currently, a school administrator, this book is a must read. Dr. Jared Smith absolutely nails the realities of the profession, and articulates that reality in a practical book that is literally hard to put down. His book reminds us all that "it's not supposed to be easy, it's supposed to be worth it!"
