Cherie Varisco is an inept cow who doesn't like being stood up to, bullies her staff and stands in the way of her student body's education. Her predecessors have been no better. The teachers and faculty, even when they know what is right, will not stand up for you and your child out of fear, job security is their first priority. If you have a special needs child of any sort, Terrytown is NOT the place to be unless you really enjoy fighting the system. You can win against them, but it requires work, knowledge and determination.
