My experience in this class has been outstanding. This class made me feel like home and relaxed me always when I ended it. The teacher was so easy to follow and understand on instructions. I now know how to fully work a camera (not fully but mostly) and can edit my pictures well. My favorite part of this semester would have to be whenever we're in the computer lab or outside. Throughout the year I managed to learn and have fun and I haven't felt that in any other class. I didn't know anyone one in this class and now most of them i speak to on a daily. I took this class because i had an extra class slot available but now I recommend it to others because this was my favorite class so far in high school.
