Mr. Smedley does not teach you anything. I did poorly in grade 11 science because Smedley taught me nothing in grades 9 and 10 leaving me very unprepared. He marks based on participation and if you're a quiet kid like me he pulls your grade out of a hat. For example, I had a 68% at mid-term and I asked him, "why?" And he literally responded "I don't know..." He then raised my mark 16% by the end of the year for no reason.
The guy is either in lala land or talking about his life in canoeing. he really needs to retire...
I don't understand a thing he says, hes a horrible teacher. He doesn't mark anything and gives marks by first impressions.
Smart guy - but can't teach. All over the place. Instructions are wonky.
Smedley doesn't teach or give notes. He doesn't hand a single thing back, be prepared to learn everything beforehand
Great person but not a good teacher. He needs to give students feed back, pay more attention to how students are doing. He needs to stop giving marks based on his 1st impression of the student.
Mr.Smedley is an awsome teacher he really knows his stuff. He he is really funny when he freaks out. He could be a little more organized.
Talks a lot, but if you actually pay attention, you learn a lot.
people either love him or hate him, theres no in between.
A really wonderful man! One of the worst teachers ever. Can't teach and "creates" marks - doesn't use test results. A real problem in grade 12 when that can effect university entrance/scholarships
got off topic alot but still awesome, knows his stuff and let's you decide how well you do
All I asked was a simple yes or no question!!!! pet peeve = music, ipods, etc
knows his stuff, that's for sure and if you want to learn it he will do all he can to help you, let's you decide how well you do. also gets off topic and tells some cool stories
Aren't u supposed to come to class prepared and on time? I can't understand you and when I ask for help you just keep talking in circles.
I had him for gr9 science...he got off track a lot and started talking about OAC physics......
Smed is a good teacher and lets you succeed or fail on your own. His mentality: class is optional, homework is optional, listening is optional, passing is optio
I learned so much in his classes - not necessarily about the subject at hand.... Do the work at home and you'll be fine though. Coolest teacher!
Definitely the best teacher I have ever had. I passed first year physics in university with an 89, Smed prepares you well!
he is so unorganized to the point where it is inappropriate. These marks are going into universities and your teaching habits are unacceptable at times
An awesome guy but just can't teach well. He's needs to be more organized and needs to understand when kids need help or more time.
Most unique and interesting teacher at West hands down....needs to get more organized and serious about teaching though, lessons are very casual and on the spot
never is organized - never gets things done on time or back on time
Should win an award for social abilities with students
best teacher at West Carleton, fun and helpful, undestands students needs!
