Very irritating, takes too long explaining things we already know, limits creativity to the point where an art class feels like mandatory labor. Avoid at all costs.

While she is talented in what she does, she is extremely confusing in her assignments and grades based on her likings, not on the composition as a whole. Basically, if you have a set style and she doesn't like it, she'll make you have lower grades. She is also extremely talkative; She makes you do days of research even if you have a idea in mind.

she is the worst teacher in all of john jay high school. she never listens to what you have to say. she take almost the whole class to explain one thing. shell embarass you in front of the entire class. she likes to choose who her favorite students are.DISCRIMINATION!!!!!!!!!!!!! and out of the kids who she doesnt like she basically just hates on them. never answers any of your questions. she will even ignore you sometimes. and act like you dont even exist.

this teacher never shuts up, all she does is rabble on about random not important stuff that have nothing to do with the project. She lets us work for 10 minutes and she is talking for the rest. Its a joke of a class, but she is the worst teacher i have ever had, or ever will have.

I absolutely did not like her. she was the most annoying teacher i've ever had and she would never leave you alone. I would have really enjoyed video art if i didnt have her, its a shame.

Diane isn't the best teacher in the world, but our school is definately lucky to have her. She's an amazing artist and a really cool person outside of school.

i think that she is a really cool person to hang out with and chat with but as far a teaching i can see how ppl. think that she rambles and puts to much influence into your work. she really tries to help though and she is a great artist.

It takes forever to get anything done in her class. She is not the best of teachers that I have had but she can be nice at times and is also an awesome artist. Better friend than a teacher.

Shes funny, but she talks forever, and i mean forever, when she explains anything. She likes stuff to be her way, but she is a good artist. She is very critical, and its hard for u to get what u want. But cool person.

She's a bit eccentric, but so are all the art teachers. She doesn't push her views on us, she just shows us many different works. I love making videos

She limits individual creativity and forces her own taste on her students.
