Corbett Smith, reporter
Corbett writes about education for The Dallas Morning News, which is fitting because he grew up in public schools. His mother, who taught him in sixth grade, held roles as a teacher, curriculum coordinator and counselor. His father, who was his high school principal, was a teacher, football coach, athletic director and a school administrator. Prior to writing about education, Corbett was an award-winning sportswriter for The News, where he covered high school sports. Read more of his stories here.
