07/31/07 - I wonder what I'll think of her after I get my dose of Calc II in college. All I can say is I'm not sure her random acts of kindness stories will help me through college mathematics. Show More Show Less

08/28/06 - Man, I can't say enough about Mrs. Smith. She was the one that enabled me (along with Mr. Zhender) to skip Pre-Calc and go straight to Calc. That has helped me out a ton in college. She helped me so much that one year and I can't thank her enough. One word: AWESOME. Show More Show Less

12/13/05 - I think Mrs. Smith is an effective teacher, but not a good teacher. She needs to learn her place in the classroom and stick to the numbers, and stop with her religious coaching. Show More Show Less
