Ms. Smith is one of my favorite teachers (she ties with Conn Hamlett). She is the primary reason I was successful in school (high school through law school). She was a stickler for the rules, but that is the only way to treat around teenagers. If you broke a rule, she punished you regardless of how much she liked you. To let a student slide would teach him/her that it is ok to break the rules. That is not how I plan to raise my children. I can only hope my children have a teacher like Ms. Smith.
One of the best teachers Goodpasture had. After taking all the honors math classes I was more than adequately prepared for college. She is wonderful.
I think Miss Smith was one of the best teachers I had at Goodpasture. After her class, which I thought was very hard at the time and had to try to make B's, I have made A's in Calc I&II easily at LU.
I had her for advanced math classes and did very well in her class. When I went to college (a nationally rated private college), I was totally unprepared for the college work and needed help.
Once saw her completely humiliate a 7th grader after a pep rally...in front of her 11th grade class. Not cool. Smart about math, but not one of my faves.
Too much homework (1-2 hours per day). Could not answer questions about poor performance. Expelled my child from her class because I asked other parents if they had concerns about her class.
I had her as a young teacher and enjoyed her as an instructor then but that was in the 1970's. When I went to college, I was unprepared for calculus even after taking her advanced math course.
Cares more the well being of her students then any teacher you will ever meet
