She has very little knowledge on the course itself and is constantly going back on her words or changing project requirements. Our summative assignment she handed out a rubric and layout at the beginning and then two days before presentations were to start she gave us a new one with new requirements and got upset when i was confused and asked questions. Very unclear, very unorganized and marks on personal stylistic preference rather than artistic ability and effort.

Has no idea what she's doing. The worst teacher I ever had. I remember she tried to ban the use of black and dark blue paint because she preferred lighter, prettier paintings. She once handed out photocopies of a self-portrait that nobody recognized as her (even she seemed embarrassed about that), tried to correct my portrait partner but made the same mistake when she tried to draw my eyes then got flustered. Constantly told stories referring to herself as an artist. I cringed so much.

She is very inexperienced with Flash, Photoshop, Projectors, and especially technology in general. She ia very biased when it comes to school work. Who hired her as a teacher.... she is one of the worst teachers ever

She is the worst teacher I had ever had. I dont even know why she is one. She has no knowledge of any subjects she does. I had her for media arts ehere there was a student in my class actually teaching ms.mckay. I honestly hate her the most. I learned nothing from her

She is the most unprofessional teacher I have ever had in the 12 years of grade school. She doesn't know what she is teaching and makes up things along the way, very biased and is very confusing. She doesn't know how to use the platforms she is teaching with (Flash, Photoshop etc), and is really bad at giving criticism (if it isn't her way its wrong). 10/10 would not recommend.

I had McKay for digital media and photography. She has no idea what she's doing, she's very disorganized and she misses tons of classes because she always has to take care of her kids and if she doesn't like you, she doesn't

She knows absolutely nothing about Photoshop and Flash. As someone's mentioned, she's awfully close-minded so you'd better cater to her preferences if you want good marks. There's no disagreeing with her.

Why she's still allowed to work here is hard to grasp. Terrible teacher. If you get her in the future, SWITCH OUT. You have been warned.

An absolutely terrible teacher. She's biased, close-minded, and she can't use Photoshop or Flash to save her life. Also if she misplaces your stuff, she will not admit it and you will lose marks for it being "late". Terrible.

Bias...the worst characteristic to have in an art teacher. She speaks to the class as if we were kindergarten students, and please...don't call me 'sweetheart'
