No. Just no. She picks favorites, is oblivious to her surroundings, and is not that educated in Psychology. In one unit, she consistently taught us the wrong definition. It's a shame because she's so innocent and nice.
quite possibly the dumbest person ive ever met. she doesnt teach anything! and plays favorites like its her job
I graduated in 2007, but I still get irritated at thoughts of this horrendous teacher. Switch to Bauer if you can help it. I still remember the one time she just wrote "NO" on my homework assignment, no explanations or help offered.
God awful teacher. Never teaches. She shows no respect for students, and forgets all of the time. You have to study by yourself, or depend on other people's notes to do well. There is no way you can learn from her.
She doesn't respect her students, worries about the minute details, and is completely unreasonable/irresponsible.She blames the students for her shortcomings as a teacher because APPARENTLY its the studenst fault SHE CANT TEACH.
Her style of teacher resembles not teaching. The best way to learn is to read your book in class. completely incompetent. Test avg’s for her classes are lower than other psych classes. Makes you bring your textbook everyday and in 2nd semester, we are yet to touch them. She makes us use pen or type all assignments. She complains about handwriting and us not taking advantage or her “lectures”. A direct quote – “I spend hours a night planning for your lessons - a grade of a D is not acceptable” "DR" smith d
I actually don't believe what she teaches and have to reaffirm whatever comes out of her mouth in the book/internet. Get you counselor to change your schedule NOW if you get her. But nice lady, arrogant, but sweet.
If you get her, be prepared to do 5 times as much work to get an A than a student with a different psych teacher. Dr. Smith is an awful teacher that cares too much about small, unimportant details. She does not teach you anything and you are pretty much on your own to learn it yourself. She rambles on about unrelated things, and if you don't say the exact thing she's looking for; it's pts off. She is, without a doubt, one of the worst teachers I've ever had.
she is my least favorite teacher ever. instead of teaching during class she spend the whole class pd complaining about our handwriting and how we are making things hard for her. If something isnt double spaced, written in pen, or just not up to snuff 2 her standards be prepared to do it over or get a bad grade. be prepared to teach yourself because she certainly is not going to or do it well. Godd luckis all i can say.
she never teaches. she tells us that ap students should not depend on the teacher to teach at all.
charts dont help! I learned because i read the book, not because i make charts! grades depend on petty details like the # of sent. in a paragr. and it shoudln't
when talking to people, i havent heard one good thing about her. and from having her, i understand.
First off, she took two points off for writing PD. instead of Per. Second off, she didn't teach anything, she just made us read the book and her quizzes are on the most random stuff.
love her, but she's sooo scatter-brained, dont EVER ask her for a recommendation because she'll forget
