Hello, my name is Ray Torres. As the band director of Smith Middle School, I am looking forward to a wonderful and rewarding year. Prior to teaching at Smith, I taught band in eight of the Troy School District Elementary buildings as well as held the position of Director of Bands at Rochester Adams High School.
I am a 1994 graduate of Central Michigan University where I obtained my Bachelors degree in both Instrumental Music and Science. I also hold a Masters Degree in Secondary School Administration.
I have two beautiful children Ella and Alec, who also attend Troy Schools!
It is with much excitement that I look forward in working with the many outstanding students here at Smith Middle School.
