Mr. Rodes is a great guy and teacher. He's one of the most intelligent teachers at the school. The guy doesn't cram all that test stuff down your throat and actually allows you to focus on learning the material. He always has funny stories to tell during class to pass some time and tries to get everybody's attention in class rather than just putting everyone to sleep. Definitely my favorite teacher in the school

As someone said "Gets us ready for the real world"
I have to say he is the best teacher I've had. Talks literally about everything, might daze off and tell stories from time to time, which are actually pretty cool, but is a great man. When it comes down to work, he gets sharp, gets it down in our heads, and knows the deal. Very fair, reasonable guy. Never see him upset or mad (because almost 99% of his students love him). Tests are too easy, questions are word for word from his notes. Love him

Great Guy. Can be tough but knows the deal and is always fair and never holds a grudge. Unlike Mr Richard who is a clown (fat clown) and is only good for keeping the fish alive.(He probably eats there food while he's feeding them) Rodes is genuine Ask any kid in the school. past and present.
