I'm just another student and I would highly recommend not taking this class. One thing is clear and it's that like the other comments she picks favorites. I personally did all my work constantly and was always on task. I would occasionally go off task whenever I had headaches or other reasons. If she likes you she won't bat an eyelash over why you are on youtube or playing games or sleeping. If she doesn't she will call you out then gossip about you. I would never want another living soul to go
A "meh" sort of class. Considers most of her students amateurs with little to no skill.
Honestly, If you have any intention of taking Animation/Graphic Design, you better make a good impression or otherwise you are probably going to have a bad time...
>Walk into Mu's, ready to animate
>Dirty look, eyes go where I go
>Convo between her and class favorite
>"Yes Ms. Mu, I know right", etc.
>Hawkeye Mu scans for malicious behavior
>Checks her screen to monitor our activity
>Ignores the guy watching Naruto and the girls on YouTube
>I'm on Google
>"ANON!, YOU ARE GOOFING OFF, WHY?"
>Load up flash to animate, hear Mu in the back
She's okay, not the best, but okay. If you focus into working on your projects, you'll get an easy A. I highly dislike on how she picks favorites and watches your monitors though.
Ms. Mu picks favorites, yes, but her favorites are hardworking students with artistic talent AND those who follow her instructions without a defiant attitude. She conducts open critiques on each student's project, and if your screen does not seem pleasing, or it looks like that you've been sleeping through the last few weeks, you're done. She does talk behind students backs, but I think her stories are pretty funny. Basically, if you are complaining about Ms. Mu, it's you who have a problem.
I had ms. mu for graphic design. she doesn't really teach aspects of design and things, but I learned a lot from learning to do things on my own and looking at examples online. but the majority of the days I snacked, talked with friends, or surfed the web and still got an A+
Gave me an F and a U! All my class has an S and O, except for this class. She gave me an F for my first project. It's like I never did it. But I turned it in, and completed it.
no words. just simply amazing w0w
THE BEST TEACHER EVER! HER CLASS IS GR8 M8 8/8 WOULD TAKE AGAIN! SO GOOD! NO FAVORITES! LOVE HOW SHE NEVER MAKES FUN OF HER STUDENTS BEHIND THEIR BACKS! W0W I WOULD RATE THIS CLASS A 20/10! UR SUCH A GREAT TEACHER MS MU KEEP ON GOING AND DONT LISTEN TO THE H8RS <3 UR TEACHERS PET
Best Teacher Ever!
Extremely easy class, just turn in your projects. She doesn't teach, just tells you to do how she do it. Picks favorites and talk behind your back literally and consistently checks your monitors. Really naggy and always gossip about students in class
So like other people said, Ms. Mu does NOT play favorites BUT if you slack off in class, fall asleep, defy her...it WILL show in your grades. What you do have to be weary about though is that she grades based on QUALITY of work (and obviously work habits is factored into it)...so yes for this class, you do have to have basic artistic talent. Lately, she has been a bit pissy because some students are no doing anything in class and openly defying her...not fun for the rest of us..
I know many students do not like Ms. Mu very much. But here is my experience having her for 2 years. It is not because she has favoritism but it is because she looks at students' performance and effort so whatever each student turns in MATTERS! If you are a student looking for an easy class to pass
I had her a couple years ago, apparently nothing much has changed. Like most of the comments, I'll mention that she just sits at her computer and eats/drinks all day. She doesn't help much unless YOU go up to HER and ask her your questions. I worked during the first semester, but I got bored of teaching myself all year so I spent second semester just playing games all period, every period. She didn't mind/care; not surprising.
P.S.: I learned more from Youtube tutorials than from her.
Literally the worst teacher I have ever had at AHS. She knows what she's doing but doesn't bother to go help students at all. All we do in Animation is make videos in flash which barely even qualifies as animation. She always picks the same people to give them them As while the rest of us *always* get Bs or Cs. In Graphic Design, I only received 78,80,80% on projects. Avoid her at all costs, definitely not that easy A. She'll often say things that are extremely offensive to students and not care
I had her for Design.. She is easy only when you actually do your work and turn things in on time. She is only helpful when you go up to ask questions. She gives you due dates and talks on the surface of things.. so only a little clear. I thought she was an "okay" teacher.
She definitely plays favorites, does not teach much, though not much rly to teach in that class, but to learn the good stuff you have to go up and ask
well all she did was teach photoshop and that was it she then had us figure out all the other programs for our selves
I've taken her Animation as well as her Design class, watched how she taught her Graphic Design class, and it is very obvious she does not know what she is teaching. I can admit that her Design class is subpar, but she has not taught me a single thing in Animation, nor have any of her previous students. All had some form of background in animation through the internet. The only thing Ms. Mu is capable of teaching is how to use Photoshop, majority of which are the most basic skills that can be learned online
Ms. Mu is not an animation teacher, plain and simple. Yes, she did teach Photoshop (80% of her lessons easily could have come from Google), but that was about it. There was no instruction on how to effectively animate, how to work with any medium, or anything of the sort. She plays favorites often. Be warned, if you get Ms. Mu, prepare to teach yourself if you want to get anything out of Animation class.
She doesn't try to motivate you in class at all. She lets you slack off and sleep. All the gives you are due dates.
ms..mu's the worst teacher ever period. how did she ever get hired. i don't get it
if your into art, and you want honesty on your artwork, and critism to help you progress, then this is your teacher. As people have already mentioned, she's a hard grader.
She is great at teaching art because that's her subject. A great teacher as long as rules are followed.
Very bad teacher! Is'nt very nice! No many people like her!
Shes kinda weird..she grades HARD..like she cares about quality more dan effort
