Using puns to keep kids focused is probably the smartest teaching method I've ever experienced. Defiately my favorite teacher. The whole class feels like a big group of friends. CHACHI FOR LIFE.
Simply put, Koda is the absolute best teacher ever. I don't know if it's because she literally knows EVERYTHING that you ask her or because she genuinely dedicates everything she has to preparing us for the AP test or a combination of all of the two. All I know is that she is always able to distill even the most complex notions into sth simple. Koda cares for every one of her students very deeply. It was touching to see her message "GO TO SLEEP" before the AP test. And also the puns!!
Had her for US History P. Very nice lady, extremely easy class (like one of the questions on one of the tests said "the answer is a") and very laid back atmosphere, did get very boring at times because of the long notes but that's history for you. Would occasionally kill some time with a bluffing game which was always funny. Very explicit on what she wanted on the few projects she gave, but since I got As on the tests (which was not difficult) I got an A in the class.
Koda makes learning really fun! Enjoy her class : )
Koda is undoubtedly one of my favorite teachers I've ever had. She genuinely interest me and is the sole teacher that I have so much respect for I am not even tempted to get out my phone or anything. She has changed my view of teaching and I love her
Ms.Koda is one of the best teachers in California :)
A very nice person to work with but her lectures were shallow, lacked variety, and were sometimes limited to her personal interests rather than the content of the AP Euro test
Her AP US History class is simply the best course offered at SDA. I got an 800 on the US History SAT II because of her.
koda made history worthwhile. she is amazing...its that simple
Koda is by far the best of the best. Her amazing power to teach, inspire while simutaniously entertain is unparalleled. SDA will miss her greatly.
koda is easily one of the best teachers ive ever had, im glad i had the chance to have her as a teacher and i hope she does well in japan next year, good luck k
ahhh i'm so mad she's leaving! why now? the best ever.
she made the Gen X poster boy that i am... Don't stop rockin' koda
She is by far the best teacher i have ever had. She actually cares about and enjoys her students. There should be more teachers like her!!!!!!!!!
Ms. Koda is an awesome teacher. She is very helpful and clear. She is so helpful that her helpful notes about my homework ended up being longer than my work.
Miss Koda's class is my favorite, I always look forward to her jokes and maybe a bit of learning!
Ms. koda is one of the best teachers out there. I can't say how much she has helped me, not just with school but in life.
I love Ms. Koda! She is so helpful and entertaining. Her class is quite a bit of work, but she is soooooo cool.
