Mr. Josh Speer

My name is Josh Speer and I am a weight training teacher at Smithville High School. If I am not in the weight room teaching class, you will find me at the football field in the Fall and the baseball field in the Spring/Summer. I am the Defensive Coordinator for the Smithville Varsity Football team and the Varsity Head Coach for Smithville Baseball. I am from Harrisonville, MO where I attended high school, then continued my education and football career at the University of Southern Missouri in Joplin. After 3 years in Joplin, I transferred and finished out my education and football eligibility at Mid America Nazarene in Olathe, Kansas. I have been at Smithville for 9 years.  I recieved my Masters Degree from William Woods in 2015. I began my Smithville career teaching at the Middle School and High School.

When I am not at school, I enjoy spending time with my wife and son, Lane, who is 2 years old. My family likes to travel, spend time watching our favorite teams (Royals, Chiefs, Mizzou, Iowa Hawkeyes... I married into that one), and you can usually find us at our favorite Mexican restaurant for dinner.
