Ms. Etch is awesome. She has one of the most--if not the most--challenging, rigorous courses in the school, and makes sure everyone understands. She is so easy to ask for help.

I had Etch for Physics last year. She helped me through my rough times, tutored me, took my phone calls, and helped me pass both semesters with an A. I worked hard for that grade - Physics is NOT an easy class - but Etch really puts forth the effort to help her students that are TRYING to pass. Best teacher I've ever had, hands down.

Most difficult Physics teacher in district. An B in her class requires more workload compare an A in other high school. Worst is EG profile is lower so get a B will even reflect lower GPA college admi

I took Etch's class when I was a senior back in '03, and I loved it. She made the material come to life. She had fun experiments(THAT SHE NEVER GRADED!), and amazing demonstations. Not the most easy class, but if you memorize those formulas and you don't put off that HUGE packet til the night before, then anyone can pass her class. Taking her class in HS made my college physics a joke... while my whole class was lost, I was just bored.

interesting lectures, very helpful outside of class, and very understanding if you have other stuff going on, used to have a time management problem (the last month of the year was cram time) but she fixed that up this past year (made a schedule and stuck to it). if you're struggling with anything, don't hesitate to go in to ask questions. she's almost always available to help. a bit slow on grading, though.

She is VERY understanding and helpful. If you are in her class, its because you are going to college, so dont expect and easy class to get by through but (at least her CP class) it isnt hard to do the work if you show up and well, DO THE WORK. good luck in college if you dont. she doesnt bite...hard...so dont be afraid to ask a question. its better to ask early and understand than go through the rest of the year not getting it and you WILL use this info for the rest of the year. really good teacher. GO ETCH

She is a great teacher. Her class should be easy to pass if you are willing to work and ask for help (you will need help). Don't worry she doesn't bite!... too hard...

Great teacher! Glad I took her class, it prepared me for college as a science major! She is really understanding. Etch let my friend took the final over the next school year so she can pass the class

Amazing teacher, nobody knows the content of a class like she does. However, her classes are plauged by her absences and lag behind making it very hard

Absent frequently for sometimes inane reasons; expects much from us despite lack of instruction. Homework is hard, tests are fairly easy.

She is absent a lot and you pay for it, she makes you feel like it is your fault and you have to rush because of it. But she is very nice

A good teacher. Unfortunately, she is frequently absent, and falls way behind on lesson plans. Our class finished only 19 of 31 chapters.
