About Me

Smith Sunglasses


Hi! My name is Derrick Smith. I am a business teacher at Lafayette High School in Lexington, KY. I've taught at Lafayette for the last 14 years. Prior to coming to LHS, I taught for 2 years at the Carroll County Area Technology Center in Carrollton, KY. I love teaching at Lafayette High School . The LHS community is made up of many great people and I am very proud to play a small part in it.

If you are one of my students, I promise you that I will do my very best to help you learn. I will also treat you with the same respect that you show me and I will always be 100% honest with you.

If you are a parent of one of my students, you can be assured that your son or daughter will get my absolute best effort. I will always listen to what your concerns are and you can feel free to contact me any time via email at derrick.smith@fayette.kyschools.us or by phone at (859) 381-3474 ext. 1129.

I currently live here in Lexington with my wife and 2 sons. I enjoy tennis, exercising, watching sports, listening to music, and hanging out with my family. I am originally from Leitchfield, KY and graduated from Grayson County High School. I attended the University of Kentucky where I earned a Bachelor's degree in Marketing and Master's degrees in Sports Management and Business Education.
