Mr. J.R. Smith

This is my 19th year teaching Science here at Osceola Middle School.  Two years prior to Osceola, I was at Belleview Elementary School. I am certified 5-9 Science and I look forward to teaching you all about Life Science this school year. I have been married to my wife Donna for 28 years who teaches 8th grade science here at Osceola Middle.  I have two daughters, Kyra 18 who is in her first year at FGCU in Ft. Myers and Kendall 14 who is in 9th grade in the Marion County Public Schools.  I also have a pug named Kramer who is 10.  I grew up south of Pittsburgh, PA and I am a huge Steelers fan as well as a Pirate fan. I received my bachelor degree from California University of PA.
