Oh Jan, What is there to say about you that hasn't already been posted. The tests are really easy, but she's bat shiznit crazy. I had her for anatomy and honor's bio. She has entertaining lectures and you learn a lot if you want to. She does do a lot of weird things like tell stories about her cold sores and other random things. I think you should take her class for the stories and the easy A. Good luck have fun

Where do I start. Well, she has a box of dead cats in her classroom and my friend found some livers in her fridge. The other day, we made buter from whipping cream, and she was going to give us a grade for watching us eat it. I am a vegan and I told her this, she completely dissed veganism btw, and she just said,Well thats the way of life! and turned to talk to someone else. She gave me a zero on the assignment BECAUsE OF MY LIFESTYLE. Simply said, she is not a good teacher.

If you are allergic to formaldehyde and crazy teachers, avoid this class. If you love learning, avoid this class. This was the easiest class ever - the study guides that she gives you (along with the answers) are nearly the exact same thing as her tests. Beware of her bad side, she is cynical and you will NOT enjoy it. There are multiple dissections in the class, and she keeps cat heads in a bucket in her back room.

Easiest class to get an A in because she grades people based upon how much she likes them. She also chooses quantity over quality. Random teacher who rewards those she likes with Klondike bars that have been sitting up on dissecting cow eyeballs for two months.

Ms. Alderson is the single worst teacher I've ever had. I had a major crisis in high school and she refused to do anything to help me.

She is a great teacher. I was her lab assistant and I highly suggest it. She spoils you and gets you presents for your birthday and at the end of the semester.

She's alright. She can rub off a little fake and obviously has favorites, but she's basically alright. She should make her own worksheets!
