There are teachers who get along with (and actually teach) students really well, and she is not one of them. Very biased towards certain students (and certainly not based on merit, or else I wouldn't be mentioning it). She marks leniently at best, but expect to get the same mark if you were to work hard than if you were to chicken scratch the whole thing. Not approachable if you are not on her "nice list" and can be close to insulting at some times. Would not recommend her.

Overall biased and has clear favourites. If you have her, get onto her good side. She usually just sits there and doesn't explain how to do our work, and expects us to know everything

Took a couple photography classes with her. It was very pointless and her views differs from the general public's views. The pictures she likes, most people usually dislike and vice versa. She's nice to the people she likes, but she doesn't do much.

She is a super nice marker. But I personally really hate her. Whenever I ask her questions she tells me I should know it because she's briefly mentioned it, and is often reluctant to answer. She is biased towards certain students. What I found extremely rude and un-teacherly were the times she made me feel stupid because I asked a "dumb question". Like she laughs over it in a joking way, but I find that somehow scarier and hurtful.

As a parent I have contacted Ms Lehtonen to gain an understanding of how my daughter is doing in her classes. She has always been prompt in responding to my emails and provides detailed feedback on my daughter's progress. My daughter comes home talking about the classes she has with Ms Lehtonen on a regular basis and is clearly inspired about the course content and newfound knowledge. I feel like my daughter is getting a high level of education and has enjoyed all classes with Ms Lehtonen.

Ms. Lehtonen is hands down the best teacher I've ever had. She is very fair, helpful, and kind. She also has a great sense of humour and is just fun to be around!! Her projects are great, and she makes teaching so much fun. I'm lucky enough to say I've had her as a teacher for 3 years in a row, and now she is not only my teacher but my friend. :) I will definitely come back to the school just to visit her once I've graduated!

She's a really nice teacher but when she assigns assignments she keeps changing it. That's the only thing I don't like about her. Otherwise she's nice.

If you get to know her she's very kind and sweet. She really encourages you to be creative and doens't limit your creative boundaries. That's what makes her a great art teacher.
