Mrs. Curren was the toughest teacher I have ever had. She was extremely knowledgeable and was very straight-forward- she either liked it or hated it. One thing I hated about her was that she graded ba

she is very harsh with grading but in her art classes (not art pod) she really helps you with her critiques and inspires you by introducing you to other artists.

She is a very demanding teacher, but I learned a lot. She is a tough art grader, but if you do chapter reviews you should pass with a B or C. She does care about her students a lot though.

I've never had a class with her, but I went on the trip she led to France. She's an awesome person who knows a rediculous amount about art. That said, she is intense, and she can be intimidating.

very self-involved, and takes things too personally, thinks everything is an affront to her dignity. But she really has students best interests at heart, like a bossy mother hen.

hardest grader in history, she's just unfair to students who try so hard but aren't good at art. her assignments are RIDICULOUSLY long for 9th grade and she's messing up my GPA.

She's an enthusiastic, interesting teacher. She's one of those teachers that lazy kids don't like, but any good student (not necessarily good artist) will like her class.

she has to understand that many of her art/history(freshman) didn't want to be put in her class but they were forced to.We are not all artists & we should be graded on effort only.

hated her- she grades on how much she likes the art work, not whether you tried or not- it's pretty much her opinion, and it's usually bad- she's a jerk
