Teacher's Biography

                      Family Picture

My name is Zane Smith and this is my eleventh year as a Social Studies teacher here at Southside High School.  I graduated from Southside in 1994 and then attended Gadsden State Community College and Jacksonville State University receiving a Bachelor's Degree in Business Management.  For eight years, I worked in the state judicial system as a court clerk and jury coordinator.  In 2006, after much thought and prayer, I decided that I wanted to pursue a Masters Degree in Education so that I could teach high school.  In May 2009, I completed my Masters coursework and received my certification in the area of Social Science.

I have a beautiful wife named Lori who is in her eighteenth year of teaching in the Gadsden City School System.  She teaches first grade at Adams Elementary.  We have three awesome boys! Our first child, Zander, was born on May 16, 2007 and is in eighth grade at Rainbow Middle School.  Our second one, Shepherd, was born on January 25, 2011, and is in fourth grade this year at Southside Elementary.  Our third son, Rowan, was born on February 13, 2017.  We currently reside in Southside and attend City Church in Rainbow City.
