Cassandra DeBottis, science
Walking into pathophysiology is my favorite part of the day because no matter how I’m feeling, I know the energy is going to be good. Cassandra DeBottis has lifted my spirits plenty of times and I truly can’t thank her enough for that. Her kind and loving personality always makes me look forward to class.
After taking anatomy and physiology last year, I decided that the next best class to take would be patho. I had no idea what to expect since the teacher that previously taught the class moved to a different school. I should have never been worried because having Mrs. DeBottis as a teacher this year was amazing.
She always makes class fun. Patho is essentially a class about the human body and diseases so at first, it didn’t seem like it would be the most enjoyable course. Mrs. DeBottis has found a way to keep every single student engaged by incorporating exciting activities, such as labs and scavenger hunts, into class.
On top of a fun learning environment, it is also a safe one. Mrs. DeBottis has impacted me because I know she truly cares about each and every one of her students. She takes the time to have meaningful conversations with us which is something that I am so grateful for. She has made it clear that we can go to her for anything – she will support us no matter what. Mrs. DeBottis quickly became one of my most favorite teachers and I was lucky to be one of her students this year.
