SHe is a very moody individual who does not grade seriously. I feel that i did not learn a thing from her the whole year - she is not difficult, but she makes the class difficult with her mistakes. she seems to have short term memory, for she frequently neglects to give us instructions for labs or such, but insists that she did give us the directions on the day the lab was due. On her tests, she makes a lot of mistakes and marks us wrong for things that were correct according to the textbook....

Although Mrs. Ruch cannot teach or even run a classroom, she is nice to talk to outside of class. I had stayed after school and once talked to her for about an hour stuff that wasn't school related and she was nice to talk to. However, for a teacher, she is one of the worst to have. For anyone in the future, who might have her, I advise you to just stay quiet. She likes the more quiet students that don't give her a hard time. She gets off topic a lot. She also gets a lot of hw from online.

she is okay but doesn't teach at all. maybe instead of reading she could explain what we are learning about.

She doesn't go over anything in class. Her form of teaching is for us to read the book and find a way to understand it on your own. She is not helpful at all. She doesn't teach, she just makes you rea

people think she's mean because they're "failing" (with a B) but all you have to do is LISTEN and follow directions. the only way you get points off on a lab is if you mess up format or something stupid. shes super sweet <3

what are you talking about? she's a nice teacher, very caring, and has a sense of humor. sure she may not explain sometimes, but you just have to raise your hand and ask her! i think she's a nice teacher.

Umm...are we all talking about the same teacher? I guess its still the beginning of the year but I really like her! So far it seems like are labs are easy, she doesn't play favorites, and she has a sense of humor.
