She's honestly the best. I've only had her for the second semester, but I've already fallen for her. She's extremely caring and loves each of her students as if they were her own kids. She explains the materials well and tells many funny stories that are actually very helpful for remembering the material.

Best bio teacher ever. I failed summer biology...then pulled through with an A in her class. I learned an unbelievable amount that others just couldn't teach me. She always has real life stories that she uses to help you remember things, and always has some rhymes or jingles for the same purpose. Awesome teacher. Try to get her. Her classes fill up really fast.

Ms. Cochrum was honestly one of the best teachers I've ever had. She knows a lot about biology and makes her class fun and interactive. Her lectures are far from boring, as she includes real life references and stories to help you remember the material. She also has little rhymes and such to help you remember important materials. She definitely is one of the harder biology teachers at the school, and it's a good idea to be on top of things as soon as the school year starts.
