She's now retired but when I had her, she was the best teacher I've ever had. Practically a walking encyclopedia of science/medical knowledge. She's engaging and thorough and keeps you interested in the subject.

Mrs. C. is retiring after 35 years here. Too bad. Too bad that is for all the up and coming students at MV. Nobody can replace her. And you all will find out about that.

Mrs C is awesome! Although the quizes and exams are impossible, homework really boosts your grade! She is really inspiring and made me want to join the medical field as a career. By far my favorite class ever!

Does anyone know if Mrs. C is retiring this year? I hope not cause I had her for AC Bio as a freshman and want to get her my senior year for A&P. I think she is the best teacher at MV.

Mrs. Varothers is very smart. She knows everything there is to know about Anatomy. I think that because of this, she is unable to shorten lessons enough so that the regular kids actually understand everything she is explainin

Great teacher most of the time. Sometimes assigns too much independent work as opposed to actually teaching important info in class. Besides that, excellent teacher.

Best Science teacher at MV. Most science teachers at MV are disappointing and don't teach very well. Mrs. C is willing to help you any time you need it and is very knowledgeable of the material.

What a fantastic teacher and role model. Just today during the winter break she sent all of her students an email reminder for an upcoming quiz and what to study! Wish all teachers had this passion!

Honors A&P is such a blast! I hear she will also teach regular A&P next year...take either one you'll love the class and the teacher and can get an A or B if you listen to what she says and do the lab work.

Shes is a fun teacher but toward the end of the year in HAP she assinged too much HW and studying. The class is unfairly based on groups and she gives more material in less time than medschool. Unorganized!

As a graduate of her last AP Bio class I can tell you she is the most awarded teacher for a reason, 20 years without an AP test failure (till us...sorry).

She got me into science. She knows how to explain things so a kid can understand them. She gives hard tests, but if you listen in class they are easy.

This was one of the best teachers I ever had in High School. She does more to prepare you for the rigors of college than any teacher I ever had in High School.
