Hello!
I am Joe Smith!

Growing up in a large Irish Catholic family on Long Island, I learned the values of listening, hard work, and patience. My siblings and parents, who were educators, provided me with insights into the strengths and weaknesses of the school system.

My wife Jenn and I moved to Loudoun County in 2004 for its excellent public education system for our four children. With a Bachelor of Science degree and a background in prosthetics and orthotics, I have established a successful business. Through my work, I’ve developed a balanced perspective, emphasizing both competitiveness and compassion.

My experiences as a former elite high school and college wrestler and a Loudoun County Public School wrestling and softball coach have given me a firsthand understanding of the importance of a safe and supportive environment for students.

Coaching provided me with the opportunity to instill a growth mindset in kids, emphasizing that effort, practice, and continuous learning can lead to improvement and success. By encouraging them to embrace challenges, to learn from failures, and to set goals, I was able to empower them to develop a lifelong love for learning and personal growth.

Help us bring Commonsense, Responsibility, and Transparency to LCPS

Academic Excellence
Ensuring that rigorous academics take center stage will be one of my top priorities. I will tackle the issues of learning loss, lower standardized test scores and modified grading policies that are damaging to our children’s progress and serve as a roadblock to college acceptance.
Safety in Schools
I am acutely aware of the critical role safety plays in schools. Our students, teachers and staff deserve to feel secure in their learning environment. It is the responsibility of the school administration to be pro-active, transparent, and accountable in creating and maintaining a safe school environment. I am committed to working towards this goal and ensuring safety remains a top priority in our schools.
Parental Rights
I agree with the experts in education who say that parental involvement is crucial for achieving the best educational outcomes for children, especially in public schools.
When teachers, administrators, and School Boards recognize the rights of parents and collaborate with them to educate their children, they can help their students succeed. The key to success lies in working with parents as partners rather than against them.
Teacher Support
My aim is to ensure that teachers are not only heard but also feel supported, allowing them to focus on teaching as their top priority. It is my duty to represent the voices of both the students and teachers, and I approach this responsibility with great seriousness. Knowledge and education are the basis for all things that can be accomplished in life. Teachers provide the power of education to today's youth, thereby giving them the possibility for a better future.
Tax Dollar Prudence
The tax payors of Broad Run work hard for their money and they want to know that whether they have children in LCPS or not their tax dollars are being used judiciously. I commit to taking a hard look at the LCPS budget each year and make sure the money is being used wisely and efficiently and that the priority is based in the classroom.
