Mrs. Roach's class is hard but you learn a lot and she's a great teacher
Mrs. Roach is an amazing teacher! She stays after school everyday to help with homework and she's very knowledgeable. She wants you to succeed and I think that that's super important. I definitely would recommend her to anyone taking pre-calculus.
She teaches well and still somehow makes the class as painless as possible. Her class is super thorough so that means lots of hw, but if you can deal with it, the class isn’t that hard tbh
Ms Roach is an amazing teacher. Has given my child a passion for math that wasn't there before. Easy to reach out to - very passionate - and prepares kids well. Class and a not easy but what at Troy is
She's very nice if you don't cause trouble and you try in her class! She's so funny and keeps class interesting. Yes it's a demanding class, which was hard at first, but honestly she's one of the best math teachers I've had. She really knows what she's doing and her teaching is very clear. For once I actually looked forward to math. Just make sure to keep your notebooks organized!
do-do-do-do-do-do-do-dododo, do-do-do-do-do-do-dododo... Honestly I think she is an outstanding teacher. Yes, she has her favorites, and her class is...demanding, but she makes herself clear and the class material clear as well. Without her I would have failed precalc.
Roach name fits her perfectly. I dragged my feet every day to go her class. I hated her class more than I could possibly describe. By the way, her good ones were the worst cheaters.
Great teacher! You just have to work hard in her class.
She has constant mood swings. I sat in a corner at the back doing the assigned homework while she went over notes, never actually paid attention, and I did fine. She picks on certain students constantly and sometimes just makes you feel bad about yourself. Her focus on her graph dance is really annoying, we actually practiced it in class while we were supposed to go over notes.
So grateful for everything she did for me this year. Taught me that hard work truly does pay off. This class is extremely difficult but if you do all your homework and study hard you can be successful. Mrs.Roach is an amazing teacher, she makes math fun and i am so thankful to have had her as my teacher.
Mrs. Roach is one of the WORST at Troy when it comes to teaching. Absolutely biased and unhelpful. She goes on and on about useless topics and doesn't teach enough. Absolute waste of my time in her class.
Roach thinks her class is the most important class in the world and get angry if you are forced to miss it, even though half the time the class isn't doing much. Expects you to always bring your book even though she never teaches using it and will give you a detention if you don't have it. She picks favorites all the time. Unnecessary amount of detail you have to put into your homework and she gives you tons.
Mrs. Roach isn't very helpful at all, unless she likes you. I know I'm not learning much from her class.
She gives too much homework and expects us to show justification on every problem no matter how simple it is.
knows what she is teaching
Several years ago she told me I couldn't even get into a Cal State because I had failed Honors Trig. I ended up getting into a top 10 USNWR private school. Don't let teachers get you down kids! Upward and onwards!
Her homework took more time than all of my other homework combined, because I needed the points. she takes points off easily on homework. Tests can be tough if you don't understand the concept but Mrs Roach is really sweet and I think she has a cute personality
Be glad you don't have Rod.
Do the homework and review your notes on a somewhat daily basis and you'll find that the tests are actually pretty easy. She's pretty generous with partial credit.
She isn't really strict on homework, as long as you do it you'll get full credit.
A lot of people complain about her, but I don't think they realize how hard she works; she's always there after school for 2 hours to help anyone who needs it, and it's not like she gets paid.
Seems to take job more seriously than before. More professional. She grades really hard and gives too little partial credit for work. The process should be more important than the final answer.
really easy but also really boring thinks that if you don't bring your book to class you'll fail...
Plays favorites, is a tough grader, pretty weird, but works hard at her job
Perhaps one of the most unprofessional teachers I've had. She comes very prepared to class with her notes and handouts which are extremely helpful. However, she wastes too much class-time going off on unnecessary tangents and
Just don't get on her bad side. She seems to only pick on the students who were asking for it. The golden paperclips were random, but oh well.
She's a good teacher, and is willing to help you - as long as she has her opinion. She's told me multiple times that there's no way I'll get into the college I want - and it's incredibly discouraging. Stay on her good side.
told me i wouldn't get into a cal state with the grade i received in her class. i'm a third year in a top 10 private college. goes to show you how much she knows.
good at teaching... but treats regular classes like honors, and honors like college or something. is kind of mean and can be rude, but also funny than anything else. doesnt really care about how your doing in class.
Has to be one of my favorite teachers ever. She has favorites, so be one of them! HILARIOUS. She is probably one of the most compassionate and understanding as well as intelligent teachers out there. Can be your friend!
She's a machiavellian woman who plays favors. To those she likes, she will give breaks to. To those she doesn't like, she will deliberately take time to find ways to take you down. Her past might uncover the reasons why.
no doubt, best math teacher. she knows her stuff. when she gets stressed she can get a bit temperamental, but she's all in all a very caring teacher. has an awesome sense of humor!
Talks too much about non-math subjects, but she makes the class interesting.
Great teacher till secon semester. She talked way to much to the filipinos. Just teach. I have always had a's in math. This was the first time I had a B and it was all her fault. She barely taught. She gave in to people
Totally awesome. She does pick on people a lot, but it's what makes the class super fun. She acts funny, but she definitely knows her stuff down. Always there to help you if you have questions. Super cool. (: Love ya, Roach!
O_O i hate and like this class, hate because its hard and she makes fun of kids but like because she makes fun of kids, lol
lol, well, her class is never boring because were always doing some weird thing like singing or something, her tests aren't too hard but she can be very picky with little things to take off points, i like her class tho. :)
has too many favorites, grades way to pickily and doesnt teach as well as the other trig teachers,and expects honors students to be all geniuses

I thought her class was great! She was also a great internship advisor! Thanks for everything!
she likes to pick on certain people and tells them to shut up even though they're not talking. kinda paranoid at times and moody.
