Can someone PLEASE tell me EXACTLY what he did? I am not aware of a conviction, nor am I aware of anything in public record detailing his "actions" Please shed some light on this for me.
I'm embaressed to say I ever wanted to be like this man.
I can't believe he would do such a thing. Too many people hold him with high regard. What did he accomplish a couple BOA regionals and some wins at ISU.
People, ISU isn't even a state championship, look at states that actually have a marchign band championship-Illinois doesn't have one.
When did he take his groups to concert festivals that meant something? NEVER, Not even BOA.
Goes beyond the duties of a teacher to work on the development of the whole child. Treats my older children differently than my younger ones; understands teen psychology and in addition also a fantastic talented musician and band teacher. What a mistake LWE made when they let him go.
Mr.Smith was a musical genius, very hard working, great at leading the marching band, and he really cared about his students, if you were having a bad day he would sit down with you and talk about it.
Unfortunately, in mid-may 2012 he has to resign, two weeks before school ended for unknown personal reasons. The music department is devastated and Mr. Smith will always be remembered as the best teacher ever.
Definetly the kindest, brightest, and most caring teachers i have ever had. He is THE MAN.
An amazing teacher. His lessons of success and modesty has been a true inspiration. The best thing that has happend to the LWE Music Department
really nice guy a bit temperamental but nonetheless a good teacher, if you don't understand something or need help he there in a jiffy and truly wants you to excel and learn music
Mr. Smith is a great person. He knows his stuff and he connects and really cares about each student. He makes the time to set you up for sucess. He's always there to talk and make sure that you are ok
Mr. Smith is an amazing teacher and an amazing man and truly cares about every single person he knows. He's one of my favorite people in the world.
good teacher, but take a chill pill, some people aren't have as much fun anymore, make the class more lively
Mr. Smith is an amazing teacher, and he is very talented. He's always there to talk to you, and he knows what he's saying and will be honest with you. I really like him, though he can be a bit intimidating
mr. smith is an awesome guy. we can talk to him about anything. he is always there for us. marching band wouldnt be the same without him.
Mr. Smith is the kind of person one hopes their child will emulate, and he really cares about his students.
Mr. Smith is the best! He really cares about his students, and tries to impart integrity and character to them.
