He's kind of difficult but he's a great guy. I loved him as a teacher
Kenneth is a VERY knowledgeable, passionate teacher. and had the potential to be great. That being said, this man played favorites consistently back when I was in his class, and that became clear very quickly. If he didn't like you, he would embarrass you every chance he got in front of your peers (which is TOTALLY unacceptable to do to a child). His arrogance, cruelty, and harshness made me look down upon him. I hope he hangs it up soon because students deserve to be taught and treated equally.
The best teacher I've ever had. While his "tough love" approach turns off the lazy folks who sit in the back, Mr.Smyrk is genuinely invested in his students pursuit of knowledge. He wants to to succeed, not by simply floating by, but by trying to engage yourself in the subject. He is always there for support in anything one may need. This man changed my life.
great teacher who really knows his stuff. yes he does favorite the theater kids and gives them special treatment but it really doesnt affect your learning, i wasnt a favorite and still did very well in his class. i really reccommend him. if you wanna learn stuff, switch into his class.
Not the worst or best teacher i ever had, somedays you may have a huge workload while others you have no homework at all. Calls out students in class which is funny if its not you. Somedays he spent the whole time talking about his personal life. Spends a lot of time going into depth about books. In my opinion he over teaches which isn't a bad thing and is manageable.
My year was great with Mr. Smyrk. He does play favorites but that doesn't effect the way he teaches or helps you in any way. He is knowladgable and has a strong opinion but is very nice, funny and a great teacher.
I read some of the other ratings on Smyrk, and while I do agree that he plays favorites, it isn't so hard to get by in his class. Do your best and he can't hate you. He's a likeable guy, funny, and smart too. Also he has a house in Italy. Main point, great guy, great teacher, switch INTO his class if possible.
Kenny is very smart but unfortunately he acts like he knows everything. He absolutely plays favorites and if he doesn't like you he has NO problem embarrassing you in front if your peers. Most of his
Smyrk is amezing! doesnt let u slide by. Cares for kids more then other teachers. A truly kind teacher. I dont suggest for u to have him trust me lol! <3 JennyRoxx
he is one of the few teachers that plays the most favoritism i've ever seen. if he likes you, you think he's the best teacher ever, if you're not his favorite he just comes off as arrogant
thinks he's "worldly" and desperately wants to teach on the college level...thinks hes more important than he actually is...material was great, he was not. definitely plays favorites.
i like you, but i hate this term paper that i am putting off
smyrk's the man. he cool,fun, and a great teacher. u gonna hav a good time in his class. jus do wat ya gotta do to get an A in his class.
does a very impressive irish accent. and ya gotta love the middle english.
he's very conceded and gives preferential treatments to students
Gotta love Smyrkie. Awsome guy, interesting to read Hamlet with...
VERY COOL GUY AND GREAT TEACHER. FUN TO BE IN CLASS WITH. ONLY TEACH I KNOW WHO CAN WIN ALL THESE FIGHTS HES ALWAYS IN. GO SMYRK!
he definitely thinks very highly of himself, to say the least. But he's a nice guy and he knows his stuff....gotta love smyrkie
Fun teacher to have but hard... Can be annoying sometimes but overall... a good teacher
he was really nice and understanding, but sometimes he would yell at me soo hard for putting on lipgloss in class.. lol but he's a kool guy
Smyrk is like no other teacher I've ever had. He's laid back, artsy, and extremely intelligent. He's also painfully honest, which I love. I'm glad I had him.
mr smyrk is the best hes a very good teacher and not only that hes a very good friend when you need some one to talk too .
graphic novels + Pictionary + movies galore + unconventional teaching style = One very cool teacher
Smyrk is awesome. He is both a friend and a teacher all in one. He is extremely laid back and is perhaps the least conceited teacher in the school
Awesome guy - brilliant yet never conceited; funny and cool
