Miss Bernese Smith is a recurring character in the ALVINNN!!! and The Chipmunks television series. She is one of the teachers for The Chipmunks and The Chipettes (among others).


Miss Smith has black hair (with a noticeable amount of gray) and pink pointed framed glasses (similar to those worn by Simon in Bully For You). She is frequently seen wearing a green stripped dress with a white collar and black belt.


Miss Smith has a somewhat low, raspy voice. It's clear she tries to be patient with Alvin as in some situations she can block him out effectively while others drive her to state she hates her life. She frequently sends Alvin to the Principal's Office as a result of his behavior though she is the one generally stuck with him in detention. Miss Smith is sometimes annoyed so badly she allows Alvin to leave detention early just so she doesn't have to listen to him anymore.
