In my opinion, she was one of the most toxic teachers I have dealt with.
She made art an extremely hard subject, and outside the class, I would love art. She only taught it one way, and her way was the only way.
The thing that bothered me the most when I was in her classes was that she uses OCD as an adjective. As a person who struggles with severe OCD, she made me cry after class that day because it was so, so painful to hear someone writing off my mental illness as a neat and tidy art piece.

She helps you make your art better when she's walking around the room, and gives great advice. She grades by the effort you put in, such as not talking when you're supposed to do your work, which is completely reasonable. I don't get why people didn't like her, because all of my friends were pretty great with her. In conclusion, she is an awesome teacher, and I got an A+ for my overall grade. Thank you Mrs. Manke!

I'm going to be completely honest in this review. FIRE HER. First of all, she CONSTANTLY threatens her students by telling you that if you mess up once she'll fail you. Secondly, she makes rubrics only to judge her students work on how creative it is. Thirdly, she shouldn't even be an art teacher. She legitimately told everyone to blend pencil WITH THEIR FINGERS. Not to mention the fact that she SCREAMS over the class. Please heed my words and FIRE HER.

She is probably the worst teacher I have ever had. She makes us rush on all of our projects and gives us no time to finish anything. She yells at everyone for irrelevant reasons and only cares that her classroom is neat. She has ruined art for me buy being too lazy to grade projects and making us grade our own and giving us strict rubrics telling us not to be creative and follow her art rules. She locks us out of the classwhen we're a minute late to class and has ruined my favorite subject.

The projects were all boring in 7th grade, and she didn't plan them out right so we didn't get to finish a project! We need more "fun" projects, and less movies that we watch over and over again!
