Ms Smatana is handsdown the most amazing teacher. She is so funny and makes science actually enjoyable. We would sing the "I love DNA" song to remember what DNA is made out of (a sugar, phosphate and a base!) She would tell us stories and give nice anecdotes to remember certain topics. In class, we would use Edmodo. It was always nice to feel so connected. I have a 95 on the regents. ;) If you have Ms Smatana, consider yourself lucky! I love her so much!

I don't know where to start! Ms. Smatana is very humorous, lovable, caring and wants every student in her class to succeed! She will work extra time to make sure you understand it and will sometimes add funny stories or funny examples! "Gimme money, gimme money, wawa, gimme money!" That's what babies say 😂😂 But you won't understand that joke unless you have her as a teacher! Favorite teacher I have ever had!!!!!!! Love you Ms. Smatana! 😆

By far my favorite science teacher ever. She's humorous and makes sure that everyone understands what she's trying to say. Because of her I got a 90 on the Regents and I'm now more involved with learning science. Amazing teacher.

This woman was the launchpad to my career in the medical field. I'm just now coming out of the MCAT and appreciate everything she's done for me in my time at Utrecht - her class actually helps you succeed in college and beyond! Great teacher, the biggest mistake of your time at high school would be NOT to take her. Love you Smats!
