Looking back, this lady was deffinitely one of the worst teachers and overall most unhappy people I've ever met. A word of advice, get out while you can. You're going school to learn, that won't be happening in this class.
This teacher has an easy photo class, but has (as of 2002) decided to add POINTLESS essays and other writing assignments *(@#&$@#($*&@!!!
I took her for foundations and I think it ruined art. I give it to her that she is a good artist and I did learn something. However, she does not know how to handle a class and is rather...sinister? But it's easy to cheat in her class.
Once you go away to college, you will realize that Mrs. Dinesen is actually a good teacher who teaches you a lot.
