The BEST teacher to walk this school. Also the BEST English teacher I've ever had. I'm just privilege to say I was taught be a legend.
Fantastic person and teacher! Turned from a slacker to a well-rounded individual. Maryanne Cochran is no doubt my "Sassy Grandmother" and my good friend.
I am a graduate of Spotswood High School and must say that there is no better teacher there or probably anywhere. She taught me not only how to be a better student but a better person. The things this woman taught me will be with me for the rest of my life. She isn't easy and will challenge you in so many ways (she may even make you cry once..or twice) but being taught by her is worth it. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
Mrs. Cochran is an incredible teacher!! She is brilliant, fair, funny, and just a delight to be around. and I love that she is always willing to talk about things - she isn't "my way or the highway" at all. I LOVE YOU MRS. COCHRAN!!!
she's tough, but as long as you really put your best effort, she really doesn't have favorites. she's open to new ideas all the time, and everything she does in that class is for a good reason, so take her seriously. and reading aloud in her class is something a lot of english teachers don't do, but it's necessary - you unconsiously put more emotion and emphasis in the right spots, helping you to understand the works. i loved her and i look forward to another wonderful year as her student.
I can't say enough about the 'Chief.' From Drama to English, and life skills in general Mrs. Cochran is one of the best teachers a student can learn from.
I didn't realize that English CP meant Speaking Skills and Notetaking 101. If I wanted those classes, I would have taken a comp class or something. Gosh. And reading aloud? What is this, elementary school? It took two weeks to read Beowulf aloud. We could have read it in 2 days tops if we just read to ourselves... She seems like a really nice teacher, but I just don't like her teaching methods at all.
brilliant woman, but she acts like she knows everything. has her favorites. expects a lot out of every student, and looks down upon kids who struggle.
dont tick her off, do your best, and you wont have to worry...its that easy...LOVE YOU!
what can i say, she's a drama teacher. all drama teachers are cool! i love mrs. cochran!!
Mrs. Cochran is by far the best teacher I have ever had in all my years of schooling. She is tough but fun and personable. She is always willing to help you. She's brilliant!
Mrs. Cochran was the best teacher I ever had for English. She was tough enough to challenge you, but she still kept it fun. I'm a teacher now, and I respect her even more. (1992)
Mrs. Cochran is a great Drama teacher. The class is fun. The teaching is fun..overall its fun!
take honors english 12, you will actually learn something and be prepared for college...mrs. cochran is one of spotswood's best we are lucky to still have her!
Drama was fun, English was good, overall a great teacher to have had. Wish there was more like her!!
Best teacher I ever had. Thank you Mrs. Cochran for being you.
Mrs. Cochran is SO awesome. She is def the best teacher at ShS.
