Decent teacher, usually her opinion or no opinion. Sad, but the truth.

She's a great person, very energetic and seemingly entertaining, not exactly the greatest teacher. Very textbook orientated and she may drag out and straight up bore the class for 80 minutes. She sometimes makes us watch movies and youtube videos in context to what she's teaching and it's fine. Closest thing to having your own mom teaching you in school. Very Soccer-mom ish, and has average and dull opinions, is a bit silly sometimes (in a good way I suupose)

Her tests are easy but she is an extremely biased and mean teacher which doesnt give her students that much benefit of the doubt. I once cane back from vacation and the second i walked into that class she looked at me and said, "oh, speak of the devil"

I honestly don't know why all these ratings are so negative. Mrs. Roth is such a great person. Just use common sense and don't do dumb things and you'll be fine. I never had her for gym but two years of her teaching me Religion was amazing. She's fun, loves to hear stories and has a great sense of humour. Her tests are super easy so don't get worked up if you have a quiz.

Religion class was an utter joke. But on the bright side, our class did have some very long and lively debates. Don`t bother arguing with her during a discussion, you`re not going to win. Decent teacher overall, however.

Her gym classes are enjoyable, but you won't do much to develop technique. She often lets you just scrimmage, and doesn't have a very structured lesson plan. As a religion teacher, she was considerably better, and was engaging with the class. We had open debates on topics as a class quite often, and is quite active.

I've had her as both a coach and a gym teacher, and she is helpful, but she really does pick favourites, like everyone else. Sometimes to the point of making the other team members hurt, and she always expects help, and doesn't really seem to appreciate it.

She clearly picks favorites (the more athletic kids) and gives them high marks and the average kids get their 80s which teachers should'nt be doing.

She's okay. I like her, even if I'm not one of her favorites, I'm not disliked by her either. Just try hard and you'll be marked for your effort as opposed to skill level (Although that's graded too)

She's pretty easy in her gym classes, if you're good at what you do - easy 85 and over. However, I agree with everyone about the favorites part. She absolutely has her favorites in the class.

Definitely plays favorites. She explains lessons on how to play the sports well; but never got much coaching from her while playing. Neither was she a very good religion teacher, in my opinion.

Yes, she does pick favourites, but it is not based on athletic ability alone. I'm athletically impaired, yet I threw myself into the activities she told us to do and put a lot of visible effort in. I worked hard and got decent marks.

AMAZING phys. ed teacher!!! Phys. Ed 20 was the best year of phys.ed in high school! She doesn't mark that hard, but to get a decent mark you have to participate and try hard. She also got to know her students personally which was awesome! She was definately someone students could always go to talk to!

I hate her. She plays the game of favorites way more than anyone else, basically taking the side of the athletes in everything. She has no heart or understanding, and thinks she's always right. If you want a heartless being for a teacher, then go with her. She's such an ice queen, and only cares about those who play on her sports teams.
