Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Steven Smucker and I am excited to open up Waxpool Elementary for the 2019-2020 school year! It has always been a dream of mine to open a brand new school and start a PE program from scratch. I am in my fifth year of teaching elementary PE and this is my first year in LCPS. I previously worked in Prince William County and Fairfax County. I grew up in Sterling, VA for most of my life and I currently live in Stephenson, VA with my wife Alexis, who is a special education teacher at Mill Run Elementary school, and our dog named Duke. I attended Virginia Tech and earned a degree in Human, Nutrition, Foods and Exercise and I also attended George Mason University and earned a degree in Health and Physical Education. I am currently working on my Master's in Health and Physical Education at George Mason. Each summer I work for a non-profit called iCan Shine and I travel the country teaching people with disabilities how to ride bikes. In my free time, I enjoy being outdoors, working out, and spending time with my family!
