Not a bad teacher, but spends a lot of time projecting his insecurities and regrets on his students (you can tell by how often he laments about what he would’ve done back in college). Rod doesn’t collect homework and instead chooses to give 2-3 quizzes a week, all unweighted like his tests if that’s what you like. Just a warning, he gets progressively lazier throughout the year at which point his lectures start halfway through the class period and he just points at the book and talks at you.

Had him for two years and he is one of the most caring teacher ever even if he shows that when you ask him questions he thinks you are annoying. Especially for AP Stats, the gradings are very fair and he always makes sure you know where you are at and how you can improve your grades. His classes may seem hard since he gives a lot of quizzes, but that kinda push you to learn the materials. Yet it is true sometimes his sarcasm gets me uncomfortable, but he is a great teacher nevertheless.

Mr. Rod knows his stuff really well, but is kind of a terrible person and not a great teacher. He insults students, demeans them, and ridicules people for not understanding his teaching, which is scattered and unstructured at best. He makes sexist jokes, and makes the classroom feel kind of uncomfortable.

I had a Rod test today. I totally screwed my grade up because of it. I went home, and there was not a single problem on that test that I should not have known how to do based on what we learned. His tests are not hard.

Teaches, gives out reasonable amounts of homework, and uses jokes to keep us from falling asleep. Obviously knows his stuff very well. The tests are difficult, but fairly so. Undoubtedly, my favorite math teacher ever. - DC

Mr. Rod is one of the BEST teachersEVER. Funny,smart,etc.He is still one of my favorites! He knows his stuff and usually teaches without using the book much of the time. He only references the book in case you need to study.
