UI grad takes the reins at two Moscow schools

Brian Smith

MOSCOW — After more than a decade teaching and administrating in the Tennessee public school system, University of Idaho alumnus Brian Smith has returned to Moscow to serve as principal for two regional schools.

The Moscow School District has selected Smith to lead both West Park Elementary and Paradise Creek Regional High School.

Smith said he has “always felt the pull of public schools,” calling them a “hub of the community.”

Upon graduating in 2005, Smith found work teaching music and special education courses in a public school in inner-city Nashville. In his years working in the Nashville region, he said he served in various capacities as both a teacher and as an administrator. In his most recent post, Smith was principal of Station Camp Middle School in suburban Sumner County — a school of about 980 students.
