I had Ms.Rod for 2 semesters, one semester for english 10 and one for advanced comp, and to sum things up, she has no idea what she is doing. I made a presentation that was assigned to us, but she never let us present. I also studied for a test that was never given, and i wrote a research paper with NO instructions on how to write one. She also makes students take "cornell notes" instead of actually teaching almost every single day. She is a mess, if you get her on your schedule,switch teachers.
I have had Ms. Rod all year and I have not learned one thing. She gives multiple of the same handouts, plays favorites to a ridiculous level, and doesn't know how to teach anything. She has tried to teach us things that were clearly wrong but said they were right. She hates any student who tries to correct her or ask questions. Drop whatever class you have this potato of a human being for.
If you come to class with a good attitude but say absolutely nothing you are fine, if you make one sarcastic comment she will hate you for the rest of the semester, my advice, do the work stay silent = super easy A
I had her for advanced comp. and I learned more in her class than in my college classes. She can be a bit confusing and unclear about what she wants, but if you ask for help after class you will learn a lot!
Ms. Rod is a strange teacher. She assigns homework and forgets to collect it. You never know what to expect when you walk into her class. She can be a good teacher, but you pretty much have to see her after class in order for that to happen. If you ask her a question, she will get upset at you. She is rarely clear about anything. I got tired of her mentioning that she was preparing us for college nearly everyday. Her class is very easy, even though it can be stressful at times. Her tests are easy
Lol poeple who say she favors, there are MANY teachers who do that. She doesn't single out any one race either. She is the person in charge of the True Colors Club in our school and she is very defensive about people being singled out or mistreated because of the way the look. She makes you think about how others feel and has helped me mature a lot. I hope she starts to feel better and has a speedy recovery.
I think she was ok. She liked me because I actually worked in her class. She was always bugging my class about taking Adv Comp. I would take it if I had more room in my schedule.
Ms.Rod is amazing. I learned so much in her class about writing. It is amazing how easy it is for me to write a paper now. So may say she is to tough but she only has her students best interests at heart.
Having just started her class, I already know she will be the greatest teacher I'll ever have in English. Nobody has taught me so much so fast about writing, and I doubt I'll get that effect anywhere else.
She rubs her feet and complains about them WAY to much. Easy final though
For the English 10 students: you don't know Ms Rod. She is one of the best English teachers at CHS. Here are two words for you: tough love. That's Ms. Rod in a nutshell.
Best English teacher. She actually teaches you how to read and write. She is always willing to stay after school and help her students with their work. Loves her work, dedicated
ms. rod is awesome. she's "tough" because she actually makes you work. i think everyone who complains about her only does it cuz they don't like to work hard. will make you think!
An excellent teacher, who challenges her students to actually think (wow, what a concept..)
Ms. Rod is probably one of the sweetest teachers I know. At the beginning of the year, I didn't like her because she always picked on me. Now, I know her a-lot better, & shes SWEET
Ms. Rod. is a very fun person and a great teacher!! she is so fun as a teacher and her class is awsum!!
She is a great teacher with a great sense of humor. Ms. Rod's class is so much fun, and even though she is strict, she makes learning fun.
Ms. Rod likes you if u r good in class. But DO NOT get on her bad side.
Ms. Rod is awsome. The best english teacher ever. She is really nice. Strict, but she's not mean at all.
I really like Ms. Rod, she is an awesome person, she is fun 2 be around, and she isnt boring at all! MS ROD IS AWESOME
She is so sweet, I feel bad for everything that happens to her. She does NOT lie.
She's great and super nice. Really scary at the beginning, but you miss her when you don't have her. Watch out for her stories though. She's a compulsive lier.
