She is phenomenal! I still use Biology knowledge from her classes that I learned 20 years ago! She can be demanding, but its all worth it!
I find it funny that I passed advanced on my SOL in biology but failed her class, and trust me it wasn't from lack of trying.
Mrs. Armentrout cares deeply for her students' success. All they have to do is make an effort to get to know her and seek her help, and she'd go to the ends of the Earth to do so.
People need to grow up and stop expecting to be babied. Ms. Armentrout cared about her students and that means a lot.
I think that she is definately hard, but so are teachers in college-and you might not like them either. I struggled through the advanced bio 2 years ago, but I'm grateful for it.
