Dr. Rooth is an amazing teacher, who helped me improve my writing tremendously. He's hilarious and makes the class so interesting and eventful. May I stress eventful, he threw his "teeth" at a student one time it was great. Highly recommend taking English 12 AP, it is my favorite class and I will miss it dearly next year.

My experience in 12 AP has been fantastic . Dr. Rooth is more than an extraordinary person, he is an extraordinary teacher. I was a bit hesitant in the beginning with his initial stern personality. Unlike my first impression, Dr. Rooth has shown himself to be the most understanding teacher I have encountered. He listens to my problems and offers advice not only as a teacher, but as a friend. Overall, he is a great teacher and I am going to miss being in his class when I graduate.

Dr. Rooth is by far my favorite English teacher i have ever had, and an phenomenal teacher too. Not only have i grown substantially in my writing skills, but i have learned far more about life, history and literature than in any other previous English class. I have no bad things to say about him, for he's proven to be genius.

He always calls me Megan. My name is not Megan. Enough said. (He's going to kill me for posting that.) But honestly he is an amazing instructor who does an excellent job in preparing his students for the AP test. He may come off as strict and difficult at first but that's because he has a evil sense of humor; once you get to know him you won't be intimidated by him anymore. He easily takes the place as my favorite English teacher of all time.

As said previously, Dr. Rooth is always there to give you a good and honest answer. He has grown to be my favorite teacher at SBHS. I admit that at first he came off as very strict and harsh but my opinion has changed completely, you will learn to love his sarcasm. He opens his classroom door for anyone and will be there to help not only as a teacher but as a friend. If there is something you don't understand he will be sure to adress it as well as he can.

Rooth is a teacher that at first is hard to adapt to but once you get to know him feel he can be enjoyable. I think that the key thing about him is that he is a teacher that gives you "tough love". He is not afraid to show his feeling when he is displeased but he will also let you know when he is happy with you. Overall he is a very interesting and fairly good teacher.

Some people seem to like him, but he would read people's work out loud and talk about why it wasn't any good. I transferred to Radon's and it was even worth the 2 extra blocks with Schallhorn I got in exchange. *shutter*
