The worst teacher I've had she can't even hear me when I talk in class. Peg doesn't even know what art is and low key chirps people in class. Why she look like a penguin tho

The only way to get a 6 is if you talk to her outside of class or during class about whatever rant she's going on. i love photography but never am going to take a class with her ever again.

Ms. Harrigan seeming gives out grades at random. Her classes are uninteresting as well as unhelpful. Would not recommend.

really boring, not too hard. talk to her a lot, kiss up, and you'll get a 5. she really likes it if you bs about women's and GLBT rights. Maybe buy a photo book to impress her?

Gives students lots of freedom. Doesn't waste students time. Its early in the term and I already like her.

She should not be a teacher here. I really don't understand. She actually BS's her way through; I learned nothing from her. I wouldn't say she's especially hard, just don't expect to get a 6 unless you pretend like her class has changed your life.

When I had Ms. Harrigan, I had her for three terms in a row. Though I did get sick of her, sge did help my photography. Wouldn't say that her photos are amazing or that class time is worth anything.

seriously, chat her up outside of class. it'll help your grade a lot. get on her good side and you'll do fine. i think she's awesome and her class was relatively fun.

she picks favorites and her grades are really weird. she told us how she calculates them so me and a friend figured ours out: i should have a 3 and him a 6. on our report cards, he got a 4 and me a 5

Seems to favor girls. Get on her good side by speaking up in class and occasionally chatting with her about your personal life. good teacher, weird grader.

Don't bother trying. I don't know if she uses a dartboard or dice, but grading is completely arbitrary. And don't worry about too little homework - I got more than math 600 and chem 550 combined...

she's not that mean....just that u have to sort of know what you're doing before going to class, a nice person, but perhaps not a nice teacher

Not one of the better teachers I've had. Seemed like she didn't know much about art or the technology. Also bears a strong resemblance to a penguin...

I still find it hard to believe she actually teachers. Be better if she actually, I dunno, knew something? She can't teach, doesn't know material or technology, is ungrateful about it, and then puts the blame on you. Run away as fast as you can.
