My deepest condolences to Mr. Smith's family. I had the privilege of being in his 5th grade class in '87-'88 and again in middle school in 1990. He was the most influential teacher I ever had and every one of his students learned so much from him. Not only did he teach us the basics but also respect for each other and respect for our country. From the halls of montezuma to the streets of gold, rest in peace Mr. Smith.
