She really enjoys art and will help you with any questions you have. She also playfully makes fun of some students which is really funny. She can be a bit weird and crazy but i guess you need a certain level of insanity to be an artist.

She's hilarious! She's pretty chill in visual arts and photography, a bit absent-minded. She feels very strongly about your artwork, either critiquing it rather harshly or praising it in front of the class. You always have to ask her to clarify something or else she won't bring it up. Her classes are really fun!

She was ok but I didn't like that she marked mostly on how well she got along with you. I mean she was ok and stuff but she changed her mind too much and was really distracted (she'll be talking about one thing and then randomly go onto another subject only to go back the first in like 10 minutes). She also didn't really help a lot. She had favorites in the class and made it quite obvious. Made me almost quit art completely.

I like her but I can't stand her mood swings. She'll like your work one day and hate it the next. She marks your work based on whether she likes it or not. Sometimes, she just pushes me too hard but I understand it's because she wants be to succeed even more. She gives way too many extensions (which is good for the people who slack off I guess). It would be nice if she were more firm and consistent as a teacher.

Had her for photography she is really funny and never serious, she marks okay. And if you ask her for help she'll try to help you if you dont ask her for help she wont offer you any

She changes her mind ALOT. Beware she might love your art one minute and hate it the next. She also doesn't help you unless you beg her. She usually wanders off in the middle of class.

Ms. Porter's great. She can sense interest- the people in photography class that clearly are not very interested, she leaves alone. On the flip side, she enriches the knowledge of those who are willing to learn more. Very nice, friendly and pretty hilarious. She lets you chat with her a bit during class and it's always fun.

Ms Porter is wacky (: There are definitely mixed reviews. I liked her a lot last year, she's helpful and knows what she's talking about. She tends to get off topic, and I can see where some students might not like her. All in all, though, she's really nice, and if you respect what you're doing, then everything will be fine. (:

Yes, she is a very hard marker, but I have no complaints since I have learned incredible amounts of drawing knowledge from her class (life drawing). Yes, kids, she can be snappy, but rest assured she rarely means it. An artist herself, she obviously knows and cares about what she does and is committed to doing all in her teaching power to make you a better artist.

One of the most unfair teachers i have ever been taught by. NO passion or care for anyhintg she does, very short temper, she talks about cucmbers and buckets more than teaching class. Needs serious sociological rehabilitation.

SERIOUSLY THE BEST TEACHER IN HAIG. I gave her a good impression for the first half of the year, been to class, sat beside her everytime, made it look like i did my photo prints, failed my exam, got a 94% in the final report card. If you get Mr Panjer for photography instead, he is the opposite of Ms Porter and tries to get Ms Porter to mark harder

Ms Porter is a easy going person. She will leaves you alot of space on anything. She might not teach much, but she allows you to create art in any artform. that's the point of art. You are creating something, not copying something. As long as you don't skip too much, or slack off at clas. You are definetly safe for the rest of the year.
