she has great knowledge but i swear shes mental. she always vents and complains about how hard her life is and how her children were terrible and how she has to take care of her sick mom, blah blah blah..... and she always yells at my class and actually threatened to kill us a couple of times if we ever get near her outside.Shes crazy and always gets of topic and always curses. i think she needs to be fired.

The best acting/set painting teacher ever!! She was the coolest, never forced us to do anything but if she did, she said it in a motivating way. Loves theater, her daughter is very nice as well and helped give a few pointers. At first I wasn't supposed to be in the Set Painting class and neither was she but eventually no other teacher was available to teach during that band and I couldn't switch out my class. So we had something in common we didn't want to be in that class but I had a ton of fun
