Smoke coming out of heater vents, HELP

I was teaching my girlfriend how to drive stick shift today and after we switched back, I drove home. We were at a stoplight and I saw smoke coming out of the two heater vents above the radio. I immediately shut off the engine and put on my flashers and checked my gauges. They were fine, no check engine, the temp was normal and oil pressure was fine. I am wondering what the hell the smoke came from and why??? While I was teaching her she had the parking brake on without me knowing for a couple runs going into first gear, but we switched and the incident occurred later on way after we had switched. Anyone know why it would be smoking??

It sounds like you lost a heater core. Not a fun fix
