Mr. Jared Smith

What's up?! I am looking forward to starting my 14th year here at Galileo Magnet High School. During the 2023-2024 school year, I will be teaching IB History (HL) History of Europe to juniors and seniors, along with IB Theory of Knowledge (TOK) throughout the course of your two years during the IB Diploma Programme. If you are not an IB student, I am also teaching APUSH (Advanced Placement United States History). I am looking forward to working with you all during this school year, especially as we prepare for the upcoming IB and AP exams in May 2024. 

In addition to teaching history at Galileo, I am also the head coach of Galileo's impressive and formidable Scholastic Bowl team (we are an annual powerhouse in VHSL Class 1) along with being the Athletic and Activities Director for Galileo. 

If you would like to contact me for any reason, please email me at or give me a call at 434-773-8186.
