She is a very knowledgeable woman, and kids can learn SO MUCH from her. She can be sort of.. tough some times but thats because she really wants you to advocate for yourself. I had her for English my freshman year and then joined theatre as a sound technician (and now am in pit!) and love theatre and Ms. Rodgers so much. She is a very sweet person if you actually sit down and talk to her, and she really does care about you. most of the time.
She is a great teacher, and I think I will realize that more later in life. She has taught me more than just how to act, but how to be a better person, how to be more assertive, and she's prepared us for the real world. She is helpful in the way that she is unhelpful - she'll never tell you what to do, but neither does the adult world. True, she is hard to deal with sometimes, and she does play favorites, but the experiences that she has given me will last me for a lifetime.
She isn't so "helpful" because she cares enough about us to make us learn to help ourselves. She wants us to grow up to be "decent people" and she gives more of her time to us than any other teacher i can think of. Some people don't appreciate how much she works and they may not get her message until they're out in the real world. But eventually they will understand. I love her classes because they help me learn how to see things from the other person's pt. of view. She puts her money where her mouth is.
To her its not about teaching a school subject, its about teaching life, and she's the best at it. I gave her a bad rating, but that's because the catagories provided don't account for total things taught. She is possibly my favorite teacher. She knows so much about life and theater. Listen to her, trust her, have patience with her, and get to know her. It will make it all worth while.
She is incredibly passionate about what she does, she always gives 105% in every production she directs. She has no time or patience for anyone who will give it less.
very knowledgeable and great at what she does. don't take her classes for an easy A though. you have to have a desire to do the work and you'll do fine.
she really trys to work with everyone not just favorites
