i LOVED ART with ms mandeson! you should see the current art teacher right now!! i hate her! ms mandeson's projects were SOO much more fun, and now we have to do a stupid speech and write essays! i loved the empty art room during tutorial-now its so busy and i have nowhere to go :( she was also very easy to talk to, but i agree she blabbed for too long though i just hate how other people talk about her. I really miss her projects and how easygoing she was. Now i have to actually WORK for an A

Even though I got an A in the class, she was unbearable. She gets angry very easily and even slams tables when she gets a **** fit. She acts harsh against the ELD students and when you're not even doing anything wrong, she blames you for it! She is INCREDIBLY unorganized. When I had her last year, she left for like 2 weeks and when she came back she did NOTHING. I can't believe she is still teaching and most of her students drop the class!

A fine example of how unions are ruining education. She brings her personal drama to the classroom ( a big no no esp. when dealing with kids) and is always all over the place.

I have mixed feelings about her. She does have mood swings and she has an erratic grading system. My friend isn't great at art but she tried really hard for 6 hours on this one piece. The teacher gave her a 92 as well as a 92 to other people who's pictures were frankly worse than her and spent less time. However she is does have her good points and I did get better at sketching. Mandeson is nice and I really like her, but she needs to learn to relax more and be fair in grading.

Although she does have moodswings and gets angry a lot, she knows a lot about art and grades fairly. She may not be the best artist but at least she loves her job and art and wants her students to succeed.

All you have to do is just do what she tells you to do, be quiet, and don't argue with her, because that will only maker her mad.

She grades pretty easy, but she's kind of freaky, Art1 was definitely not fun. I don't even feel like saying Hi to her in campus.

Bad teacher, made me not want to take art again. She can be nice sometimes but has lots of mood swings and is very irritational. If you lay low and just not listen to her rants, the class isint terrible, just bad.

worst teacher i've ever met.=) she has too much of the side conversations with the most randomist things ever. She gets too emotional on certain days, getting crammy on all the classes. when i had her the TA changed like 3times because she made them quit.(even though they were working really hard) she is baised on some students and becomes really harsh on students she doesnt like. i had her for 2years and she still doesnt remember my name. Art used to be my favorite subject, and now its the worst b/c of her

I feel as if I'm dealing with someone not of a professional art background. She takes most of her time talking about her personal issues and varies on her mood how long she's talks about them in the beginning of class.

She brings too much of her personal problems to class. Is not very clear on what she wants and is picky about wierd things and gets upset easy over these weird things.

Yes, she's very sensitive, so don't bug her and you'll be fine. Take the class with a friend and you'll be fine! But don't ever be her aide - you work too hard!

Gets mad over people coming late into her class, sucks if you have her 1st/after brunch/lunch. Whines too much about how she's single + has no friends.
