Ms. Lathrop used to be a good teacher, but her quality has dwindled. People come out of her class not knowing much more than they started with, and she is little help outside of the classroom. I do not recommend her, as you will be stuck learning by the textbook because her lectures do not teach anything, her work is a joke, and she is overall an ineffective teacher.
SHe knows waht she is talking about but loves to yell and lecture her students so much that she spends more time telling us that we're wrong, rather than how to be right.
Mrs. Lathrop almost has a cult going. We literally brag about having our science fair projects near her door and shun those whose work languishes on the Wall of
You know how you never fully appreciate something until you don't have it anymore? That's Mrs. Lathrop... I never realized how amazing she was...
Peggy was a tough teacher for me but one of the most rewarding. I hope that she is still challenging her students like she did to my class!
Lathrop has expanded my mind in the last 2 years. TOK has been a blast since I know how to look outside my mindframe. Chemistry has been also a joy, lol.
