Mr. A. J. Smith
Hello! I'm A. J. Smith, and it's my pleasure to be teaching general music and choir here at Paseo Hills. I am a native of Arizona and received my bachelor's degree in choral music education from Northern Arizona University. This is my 11th year teaching in the Deer Valley Unified School District, and my 10th year teaching at Paseo Hills School. I have also taught in the Peoria School District. In total, I have been teaching, either part-time or full time, for 12.5 years.
Below I have listed the subjects and grade levels that I teach here at Paseo Hills School:
-Kindergarten, 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 5th grade general music
-3rd-8th grade choir
I am excited to return for another year of music making with your students!
