Gary Schmidt is probably the best teacher ever to set foot in the school. Not only does he run good class discussions, but he is also a really cool person with a great sense of humor.
Like many, Mr. Schmidt is a cool and smart guy, but he tends to have very obvious and linear discussions in class, and on finals all he wants is for you to repeat what he said in class. He tries to be inspiring, but he's just not very good at it.
class: go in, schmidt says all relevent points you thought of doing the nights hw the night before, then asks for opinions. just repeat what he says back to him showing that why you agree or disagree. do well on those memorization thing and papers
I've found his class generally frustrating, and I haven't learned very much about how to write. In class discussion generally didn't happen, and there were very few, very unstructured writing assignments that were difficult to succeed on for that reason.
from texas to mass to cali! so he's been liberaled down! great guy to talk to! we watch wicked cool videos in his class too!
has a great sense of humor, really nice person, quite good teacher that knows his stuff.
By far my favorite teacher, really easy on us but helpful if we need him to be. friendly, sometimes too(as in he lets us get away w/ too much). loves jokes
Definitely one of the coolest teachers here. The English is pretty good too.
Much nicer teacher than Mr. Murdock, but won't try pushing you. At all. You learn much more from Murdock, but have to put up with a lot more to learn it.
