Hello! I am Mr. Joe Anspaugh. I am the SMS Media Specialist. I have been in education since 1997. I started out teaching 1st grade , 6th, 7th, and 8th grade, and 5th grade at St. Joseph School. In 2001 I came to SMS and taught 7th grade English (with one year of 6th and 8th) up until the 2013-2014 school year. Mr. Mikus then asked me to become the school's library media specialist.
I am quite busy at SMS. I coach three academic teams -- Spell Bowl, English, and Science. I direct the play for the SMS Madrigal in December, and I am also the assistant director for both the SMS and SHS theatre departments. Lastly, I am the sponsor of the SMS Media Club and direct the SMS Bear TV announcements each morning. You can find out what is going on each day by watching the announcements on YouTube every day.
