The best English teacher EVER. Went from a D to an A
Great teacher, really cares about the students as people as well as learners, unlike some other teachers who seem to regret ever choosing the profession of teaching.
SMITHY U GUNNERRRRRR
Cares about her students deeply but tries not to show it. Intelligent, knowledgeable and a massive influence on me (4 years past yr 12).
Knowledge, engaging and a good teacher.
However brags too much about her kids, and the fact that shes one of many VCAA assessors (big deal).
Smithy you legend
I was always a strong English student, but rather than just marking me highly, Lynette pushed me to be even better. She also gave me advice that made me realise I didnt have to pursue a 'practical' career that made me miserable - I could study something I loved and still be successful. I majored in English and Linguistics, then undertook a Master of Publishing and Communications. I'm now an editor at an international publishing company and will forever be grateful to Mrs Smith.
Easily one of the best teachers... Very helpful and funny, but just don't get on her bad side or she'll pick on you a lot
Quite easily the best teacher I've ever encountered. However it is true she favours Senior School students.
Mrs Smith is probably the best teacher or one of the best at EDSC - She is soo funny and knows what she is talking about. She iseasy to talk to so all the kids in our class like her!
For a teacher she is very insecure, trying to get us to tell her she is a very good teacher. Well she is OK but thinks she can get by with her assocaition with VCAA and talking herself up to us studen
Fantastic lady, confident, funny and very clever....my kids and I love her. Thanks for all you advice and support over the last 6 years.

No doubt she knows her work but can have bad mood swings and can be rude.
I have never had her as a teacher but as a co ordinator she was very nice and never put students down unlike ms howie.
she's not taking VCE english because she's going on long service leave this year. She's awesome! i learnt so much from her last year! good sense of humour, and very smart, if a little sarcastic.
I think Mrs Smith is an excellent teacher, i have never had any confrontations with her as a coordinator so i wouldn't know. But she's a good sense of humor, and her classes are always fun.
Not taking VCE English? Obvious that some think she isnt good enough ,
amazing and interesting teacher. we get into the best discussions in lit class with her. treats us like respected teens not idiots. :)
amazing sense of humour, not afraid to 'tell-it-like-it-is', doesn't take rubbish from anyone, wish i had her as a teacher previous years!! Awesome Year 12 English Teacher!!
Mrs.smith can be a real meanie sometimes! but then sometimes she is really NICE! she always keeps me and a girl in our class for comments:) i think she needs to work on making her lessons funner! :(
absolute best teacher ever...every teacher should be like ms smith! makes every class fun and her amazing knowledge always keeps u interested
Best teacher i have ever had :) whilst she was very tough, she was also very determined that her students did their best. Knew when to draw the line, but never made the classroom uncomfortable
