I absolutely loved going to his class. He genuinely cares about his students and provide help in every way that he can so each of his students can succeed. You have to try and earn the grade you want in his class but you learn a lot by doing so.

Once in a blue moon, our lives intertwine with the lives of people who silently, unknowingly change lives every single day. Mr. Smithyman is one of those people. The first and only role model I've ever had.

Bill was easily the best teacher I have had. He is harsh because he knows you can handle it. He was my biggest supporter sophmore year. I could tell he cared, and that is a great quality as a teacher. Wish I realized how great he was back then! PROPS TO YOU BILL!

Easily the best teacher I've had in my life. I agree he picks favorites, but he is respectful to all. He brings a certain personality to his class that makes students really want to work hard and earn his respect. Phenomenal, perspicacious, gr8.
