I graduated from Homestead in 2005 and now teach Geometry. Thank goodness I had Mrs. Smythe! My first year in the classroom it all came back to me because of Mrs. Smythe's excellent teaching!

her class was so hard, and everytime you asked for help she would say "Just figure it out!" and then yell at you if you get it wrong.

her grading is obsurd. homework load is way too much. She doesn't realize that students have other classes and other priorities so she piles up so much homework. you don't ever get a break from it.

She always used to rush out to lunch. But other than that, she's extremely clear: lots of overheads and visual stuff to help you understand the material.

Relies on students to do much of the teaching, but i like that. She is extremely picky and expects far past the reasonable level of neatness.
