Mr Roddy is the best teacher I've ever had. I had him for Physical Universe (not too difficult) and AP Physics (hardest class I took in high school). Class was always really interesting and I learned a ton about physics. I also learned how to efficiently and effectively learn and study challenging material which is extremely valuable in college.
I had Mr. Roddy for AP Physics, and had a wonderful experience. He was a strict teacher, and expected a lot of everyone. He was a bit scary and moody at times, and god help you if you were late to class, on your phone, or turned in late work. However, he was fantastic at teaching the material, and if you were on top of your schoolwork, then he was a great resource. He was entertaining and awesome at lecturing. Looked forward to his class every day.
In honesty, he's a bit overrated. He's still pretty good though! His lectures are funny and engaging, and the demos are cool.
Amazing, funny, and hilarious. Roddy is the man. Take physical universe and you won't regret it. Just to have him as a teacher is a gift. Don't take him for granted.
By far one of the best teachers I've ever had. I would recommend taking anything he teaches simply for the experience of having him as a teacher.
Phenomenal teacher. Not only is he time-efficient, clear, fair, and an honest grader, but truly lives and breathes the subject he teaches. He also provides amusing anecdotes, which often help greatly with visualizing of the subject. He also provides thorough advice in graded work, readily points out mistakes, and is generous in permitting test correction sessions.
Was an awesome astronomy teacher. Was also a very funny teacher. Probably my favorite teacher I will ever have! i wish i could go back to high school to take his class again!
Roddy is easily the best teacher at Edina. He's hilarious and extremely smart, but can be scary strict at times. He has the respect of his students and will sit down and help whoever asks for it. Definitely take his classes.
Mr. Roddy is one of the best teacher's I've ever had! He is extremely passionate about astronomy and physics and is absolutely hilarious.
Amazing teacher. In the top 5% for my favorite teachers of all time
Great wonderful teacher. Just be sure you pay attention in class, and always work your hardest. He knows when a student is NOT trying.
By far my favorite teacher. And beyond being able to actually teach, he is a great person to go to if you need help in other matters. Roddy is just a great person
Smartest man I know. Take his Physical Universe class if you can, it will blow your mind. He is a "work hard play hard" kind of guy.
you will learn in his class. if you need help, ask, and he's right there for you. one of the best teachers at edina high school.
Roddy has no match. His style is cutthroat, but if you choose to listen it'll make all the difference in the world. He forces you to learn the material, and if you do the homework you should do well on the tests. Chemistry is all conceptual; Roddy is a genius when it comes to explaining what your first yera chem teacher probably doesn't know how to teach you.
Roddy is most definitely one of the smartest men I've met, and he's also an awesome teacher, one of the best at EHS. He gets moody really easily, which is a drawback, but he's halarious and full of funny stories. His class would be impossible if it weren't for the huge curves on tests and the fact that half your grade is hw.
Awesome! Enr. Physics was extrememly interesting and fun, thanks to Mr. Roddy. And you gotta love the stories. (But watch out when he's in a bad mood.)
You will not find a better teacher in high school He is brilliant, he knows his chemistry and physics. Listen to him, you will learn so much about life.
if you come to class, listen, and try to be pleasant, mr. roddy will be one of your favorite teachers.
Roddy is the coolest teacher ever!!! I love his stories about his old high school.
