Truly phenomenal teacher. Engages in discussion w/ respect for students' intelligence. Always busy w/ very interesting things but has time for every student. Oh and hilarious stories. He'll be missed.

I like how most of his class relies on discussion and sharing. He knows ALOT but gives students a chance to get into the topic. The only problem is, he will mark something hard just to make a point.

You are a fantastic teacher and one of the reasons you got me wanting to be a teacher! I had never had interest in politics or anything of the sort until I had you as a teacher. You're great!

The best of the best, his enthusiasm is catching and he never lets his personal feelings get in the way of telling the whole story.

Mr. Smith is the coolest teacher ever. I wanted Civics to be a year 'round course. Never missed a class. Story telling is a mazing. I could go on and on.......

Smitty is the best of the west. But he doesn't give away marks nor does he make them unattainable-he teaches, he loves it and it shows. Long live him!
