Cody Smith

Cody Smith is a middle school teacher at Reach Cyber Charter School (Reach Cyber). He currently teaches social studies, and his favorite lesson subject is the Wright brothers. Growing up, Mr. Smith was inspired by his high school teacher who really wanted to help students, and after graduating from Millersville University, he decided to pursue a career in education. He shares more below.

“My favorite thing about teaching at Reach Cyber is the diversity of students I get all in the same room. We have students who live on farms all the way to students who live in cities. It is neat to see students of different backgrounds working together and talking about their life experiences with each other.

I use a lot of energy in the classroom that shows I really enjoy teaching, and that spills over to the students. I also love teaching through primary documents. It is fun to watch students wrestle with a primary source and then go back to see what they were able to pull from a passage or picture and discuss that with them.”

When he is not teaching, Mr. Smith enjoys working with radio control cars. He also cycles and runs half marathons with his wife.
