An amazingly nice person, and a fairly helpful teacher, but she talks for a long long time leaving little time for work to be done

She is very nice, however she lectures for way too long, and her projects have little to no guidelines. Also she is not exactly knowledgable, and the Teacher's asst. are way more knowledgable than her, and practically teach the class, while she short of knows what she's doing.

Kind teacher, but I really wish her projects had more structure and direction to them. I also wish she knew more about the programs she taught. Not dissing her, but it would have been helpful.

The Media Lab is a hidden Gem at Newton South. The students who do indulge in its riches are not worthy. Taking Ms. Ober's classes have been one of the best decisions of my high school life.

Only take one or two classes with her. She is amazing and its like getting 2.5 credits for free blocks with minimally restricted internet access, but the first half of the year she will give lectures that wear thin VERY quickly. other than that she is amazing. Easy class. Easy A on your GPA.

She spends 3/4 of the class talking and only lets us actually use the computers 1/4 of the time, but she's really nice and one time she caught me reading the New York Times, and didn't care at all. Easy A, and she's really nice.

if you're good at computers, she'll love you. she does, however, treat you like a 5-year-old. you can do whatever you want in her class though. i spent most of the time playing games.

She's nice, but she talks too much. She should learn how to use Photoshop better. She makes us do things her way which sometimes turn out ugly.
