Very chill physics teacher. If you want to slack off in her class, you can probably get a 5. If you're super interested in physics, pay attention in class and you'll do great on the tests. Mrs. Odden is funny, great at engaging students, and truly understands the struggles students go through at Phillips. I strongly recommend you take Physics with her.

GOAT! she isnt a big talker butt she knows a ton. ignores everyone who blurts out in her class, which is actually super funny. if you show up work moderately hard and have a good attitude she'll sauce you a nice grade. astronomy is a class worth taking, no doubt

Ms. Odden is so awesome! I don't know what all of you other people are talking about but - she really tries to help you out. She's always willing to hold study sessions two nights before the test and even meet you out of her own time individually if you're really struggling. She's easy to talk to an

Really cool teacher for somebody who likes Physics. She's helpful for us who don't, but she won't make you like the course or anything... Still good though

Nice and funny. Her tests are straightforward IF you do the hw - there are rarely curveballs. Study concept questions. Only thing is she often takes up class to review hw instead of teaching new stuff

Ms. Odden is awesome. She is really enthusiastic about physics and she has a great sense of humor. She may not be the easiest grader or the easiest test-giver, but she does everything to help you.

Of the 4 physics teachers I had, she was the 2nd best. I earned a 5 on the AP, but she took a hunk of my soul.

Okay. All of you who say she is "dry": you are probably dry and you clearly do not understand her humor. She is hilarious and she is by FAR the coolest teacher I've had at andover.

Mrs. Odden may be difficult for most to make a connection with, but if you like to learn and try hard to click with her, she can help you soar. Very caring.

She should have never become a teacher, especially a math teacher. She has no enthusiasm for her job, no curiousity whatsoever to improve or care how much people are learning. The only reason that anyone knows anything in her class is the textbook.

I've only had her as a coach, but she was pretty cool. I'm not always sure that she knew what was going on (especially with field hockey) but she was really enthusiastic and she made practice fun.

She needs to be much more enthusiastic and states the obvious way too much.

While she knows the material well, she is one of the weaker members of the physics department in compared to those like Dr. Watt, Dr. Perrin, etc. Furthermore, she fails to present material in a compelling manner.

Very dry, but very funny. Explains things clearly and succintly. Her grading policy is a bit vague, but that really is not much of a problem. Overall quite good.
