Cotts is the best teacher ever. He's an awesome person to talk to and is always willing to stay after and help with whatever you need help with. I've learned so much from him, including random facts that don't have to do with the course but that are super interesting and awesome to know. I encourage anyone who has him to ask tons of questions because that's how some of the best conversations get started. Study tons for his hard tests! Cotts really cares about everyone and is truly the best.
Mr. Cotts is a legend. He was a rare breed. His class was very difficult with the purpose of preparing us for college, which worked well. It was also the class I most looked forward too for his quirky humor and intriguing, yet informative tangents. He often stayed after with students until as late as 6 to help with homework or things totally unrelated to the class. He is a mentor to anyone he meets and truly cares about each person. Bring him cookies and it will make his week. He's the BTOT.
This is going to be old school here, but I had Mr. Cotts back in 1992-1993 and he still stands out as one of the most engaging teachers. As a transfer into the school for my senior year, he recognized the challenges being a new kid and took the time to make the educational experience was one of a kind. Those who are lucky enough to be taught by him, please recognize you're learning from the best.
The best teacher in the school. One of theeee funniest people i have ever met. Really makes the class a good time.
really funny guy but NEVER complain because he will give you a ten hour lecture and after about the 5th lecture this year he got to be really annoying.
I love Cotts. He's an awesome teacher, but his tangents sometimes get out of hand. It's only bad when you're really trying to focus and he's not focused. But he's still one of the best teachers ever!!
Absolutely the best teacher I have ever had. He really cares about what he teaches. I have grown so much as a student and a person from my experiences in his class. The first class I've had that really encouraged asking questions, and questioning the teacher. He really is an amazing person
Cotts is a good guy and a great teacher. He doesn't make physics a scary subject and makes sure that everyone understands what's going on. He is very clear in what he is lecturing about and would recommend taking him.
Awesome teacher, if u slack, he'll put u back in ur place, take him before you leave saratoga, wait... highschoolers cant choose teachers
Easily the best teacher I've ever had, in high school/college/you name it. Understands teaching better than anybody I've ever met.Hardest Class/most rewarding.
very funny and makes physics easy. love his stories of Ithaca
Cotts is the best teacher ever- he knows how to make a hard subject easier to understand and have fun all the while. Plus, his fave students were "the twins";-)
One of the greats. He's hilarious and goes off on the greatest tangents. But you'll learn a lot and it's fun at the same time. Rare. Take Physics for Cotts.
Cotts is awesome! He's so much fun, gets a little cranky when you get off track to much. Send entire classes talking about his college days.
