Had her as first semester studio arts teacher & let me tell you she's

1: Always lost.
2: no care in the world if you were sick or broke something and gave a doctors note. Just wants the work she assigned to do in room/classroom done and ready!

3: Never gives extra time
4: very very disrespectful as in putting students down & pushing away thier ideas! you don't do what she wants to do, then it's no good!
5: She choses favourites in the class

6: Always late 

DON'T TAKE HER CLASS!!

I've never had a teacher as condescending or useless as her. She rarely knew what she was doing when she gave out projects, she would repeat the same things over and over again throughout the class and she would often pick on students in the front of the class. I came to her genuinely eager to learn and she taught me absolutely nothing and made class hell for everyone there. It wasn't a printmaking class but she wouldn't shut up about printmaking too, if you have any other choice don't take her.

I am amazed at the amount of positive reviews she has. She belittled me, insulted my appearance (completely unprovoked), and totally shot down every single one of my ideas. I asked a lot of questions as I'm no artist and she would tell me how to do something and then when I finished she would tell me that it was all wrong and that I would fail. This woman should not be teaching. She is an angry, bitter person.

This teacher is horrendous. Avoid at all costs. She picks favourites and is awful to the people she doesn't like. I made an appointment with her to catch up and she wasn't there when she told me to be and treated me like dirt the entire time.

She isn't a very clear teacher. I was never quite sure what she wanted from us. She often changed her mind and added/removed aspects from the projects and it got confusing. She intends well but sometimes she is really harsh in her way of saying things.
