A great teacher who really knows almost anything revolving around Latin. Mr. Smith is also fun and sarcastic. For example, he likes to joke around with the students who have done funny or embarrassing things in his class. However, if you don't attempt the homework or study for his daily quizzes, you will find yourself falling behind.
I learned more about analyzing literature in Mr. Smith's classes than in all my English classes. He is incredibly knowledgeable about the texts, infectiously enthusiastic about what he's teaching, and is always willing to help students that are struggling. If you have the space to take Latin with him and are at all interested in it I would highly recommend doing so, especially the higher level Lit and AP courses.
Honestly, if you pay attention in class, you will have a 90+ average. You will also learn more in his class than you will in English. He's been teaching for a long time, so he knows what he is doing.
One of the best guys I know, you may think he's kind of weird at the beginning of the year, but he's one hell of a guy when you get to know him and is always available for help (if you need it in Latin..)
One of the nicest teachers ever, he's so awesome and maintains the attention of the class. If I didn't have him, I don't think I would like Latin as much as I do. He gives our class plenty of practice
All around great teacher. And even though the first few years of Latin are easy the AP courses get much more difficult (as they should) but Mr. Smith still keeps them manageable and gives plenty of w
Ive had Mr. Smith for two years (he taught in the middle school last year) and he is my FAVORITE! He is always in a good mood and I have learned a lot in Latin these past two years Smithy is the BEST!
One of my fav teachers! He's at the Middle School and everyone loves it when he sings all his songs, like the Mickey Mouse one. Everyone loves his "Huc Illuc" dance, and his little sayings!
