Mr Roddy is the best teacher I've ever had. I had him for Physical Universe (not too difficult) and AP Physics (hardest class I took in high school). Class was always really interesting and I learned a ton about physics. I also learned how to efficiently and effectively learn and study challenging material which is extremely valuable in college.

I had Mr. Roddy for AP Physics, and had a wonderful experience. He was a strict teacher, and expected a lot of everyone. He was a bit scary and moody at times, and god help you if you were late to class, on your phone, or turned in late work. However, he was fantastic at teaching the material, and if you were on top of your schoolwork, then he was a great resource. He was entertaining and awesome at lecturing. Looked forward to his class every day.

In honesty, he's a bit overrated. He's still pretty good though! His lectures are funny and engaging, and the demos are cool.

Amazing, funny, and hilarious. Roddy is the man. Take physical universe and you won't regret it. Just to have him as a teacher is a gift. Don't take him for granted.

By far one of the best teachers I've ever had. I would recommend taking anything he teaches simply for the experience of having him as a teacher.

Phenomenal teacher. Not only is he time-efficient, clear, fair, and an honest grader, but truly lives and breathes the subject he teaches. He also provides amusing anecdotes, which often help greatly with visualizing of the subject. He also provides thorough advice in graded work, readily points out mistakes, and is generous in permitting test correction sessions.

Mr Roddy is by far the best teacher I have ever had. I don't like science, but I would take any class taught by Roddy. He is really smart and has a very deep understanding of what he teaches. He definitely cares more about you learning the material than your grade and often doesn't grade tests for months which can be annoying but he is very clear about what he expects from his students so even though the grades may not be posted it is still easy to know how you're doing.

Roddy is easily the best teacher at Edina. He's hilarious and extremely smart, but can be scary strict at times. He has the respect of his students and will sit down and help whoever asks for it. Definitely take his classes.

Roddy has no match. His style is cutthroat, but if you choose to listen it'll make all the difference in the world. He forces you to learn the material, and if you do the homework you should do well on the tests. Chemistry is all conceptual; Roddy is a genius when it comes to explaining what your first yera chem teacher probably doesn't know how to teach you.

Roddy is most definitely one of the smartest men I've met, and he's also an awesome teacher, one of the best at EHS. He gets moody really easily, which is a drawback, but he's halarious and full of funny stories. His class would be impossible if it weren't for the huge curves on tests and the fact that half your grade is hw.
