Had her for geometry and calculus. She is an expert teacher, as in, she is a master of teaching methods. She teaches difficult content in building block fashion. Also, I still use her "good to bad" scale. I wasn't a particularly good student but she showed genuine interest in me as a person. She is tough. She is also an amazing person to have on your side.

She gave me detention because I didn't do my homework when i did, she never really taught me anything (I had to have a tutor teach me the material), she says questions will be on the test/quiz when they are completely different from what she said

although mrs smothers is strict, she will be a great help. at first, i didn't like her and she always yelled at me, but if you go to her when you have trouble in classes, she'll love you. i went to her almost everyday after school for help and by the end of the year, she loved me. she'll give you life tips, and also SAT tips. she's the best and influencing teacher ever.

The class is pretty easy but she is getting old and becoming forgetful. Her curves are very generous but dont try reasoning with her because it wont get you anywhere. She actually teaches you everythi

I had her for geometry. Theres hw every day. Read the lesson in the book before doing the hw. Sometimes test questions come straight from the hw. Its not THAT hard to get an A in this class.

in the beggining of the year, she'll trick you into thinking she's a nice teacher that enjoys her job. she's cranky, sarcastic, and downright mean at times. at all costs, switch into Mr.Conlin's Calc

on back to school night, she told parents twice that she would make the students suffer, and that was on her day to give best PR; seems to hate kids; keep your students away!

Smothers is the only math teacher I've ever understood. Her class is hard, but it's AP. What do you expect?

She tries hard to make a difficult (Honors) subject easy and interesting. Do your homework and pay attention and you will do great!

Her tests are difficult, but there isnt anything that we never discussed on them. Take this class if you dont mind a little work. Alot of group work, at least, inc. group quizzes!!

The class is easy if you replace the teacher with the book. As far as I'm concerned the only person that has taught me anything about calculus is myself.
