“Chad lives by the saying, ‘Students don't care how much you know until they know how much you care,’ and every one of Chad's students knows how much he cares. In my opinion, there is no one more deserving of this recognition than Paul "Chad" Smith.”

John Daniels
Principal, Randolph Technical Center

“Over the past 10 years, I have learned how to educate a variety of students with different learning styles and levels of understanding. Each student is unique in their own way, so I have had to differentiate my instruction to effectively reach all students.”
"The thought of Chad accepting this nomination with grace and humility is definitely outside what he expects. He has commented that he doesn't work here and hasn't worked a day since starting as an instructor at Randolph Technical Center!”

Christina Thomas
Randolph Technical Center

"“The use of Google Classroom allows me to effectively communicate with my students and is especially helpful when students are absent. It gives the students essential basic knowledge so that they can be prepared for the projects that are available when they return to face-to-face instruction."
