By Jen Jones COSHOCTON - Th e relationships he had with his own high school teachers are part of the reason Steve Smith chose to become a teacher. “I actually changed my major in college because I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do,” said Smith. His college roommate was majoring in education and that felt right to him. Of Smith the four core subjects, math was the one he liked the best and now he is an Algebra teacher at Coshocton High School, his Alma Mater. Smith holds two master’s degrees – one in school administration and the other as an intervention specialist. He is also part of the coaching staff for the football and track and fi eld teams. “Being a coach is a great way to still be able to compete in sports I enjoy. And I get to work with young people, too, outside the classroom.” He said that is what he enjoys most about coaching. “It gives me the opportunity to have the same impact on them as my coaches had on me.” “Th e hardest thing about coaching is the time is takes away from my family. Sometimes, it seems I’m working with other people’s kids more than my own.” Smith said each sport has its challenges when it comes to coaching.

She had to feel rather nervous as the Raid- ers managed 18 points in the fi rst quarter, but she had nothing to fear as the Black Bears had other plans for that night. Th ose 18 points were all the Raiders were getting and by the end of the night, River View stood 27 points tall, winning their homecoming game, their third game in the Muskingum Valley League and standing 4-3 overall. “Football is a faster pace and a lot of pressure to succeed. Track and Field is co-ed and that can bring its own issues, but it is a more laid back sport.” “Being a coach Smith and his wife, is a great way Analea, have two sons, Braxton and Corbin. to still be able Th ey attend the First Church of the Nazarene to compete in and enjoy spending time sports I enjoy. at his parents’ house on Atwood Lake. “We like And I get to spending a lot of time work with outdoors.” Th e family is also active in 4-H. “We young people, spend a lot of time at the too, outside the fair.
