Comment:
By far my favorite professor, my only regret is not having known her prior to her last year before retirement. Gives excellent feedback, but is no nonsense when it comes to writing papers, answering questions and arriving to class consistently and on time. I you do the work, she will reward you.

Will not take again. Needed her class for my degree (wasn't sure when it would fit my work schedule again). Lays down the law (understandable) but applauded a classmate for showing up sick. If you value your health, don't take her.

I have learned more from Dr. Taylor than I have from any other professor at Portland State. Her lectures are always informative and engaging, her tests are fair assessments of knowledge and the few writing assignments she gives are always interesting and rewarding to complete.

Professor Taylor is an excellent teacher. The course for a 200 level is quite hard, with a lot memorization of paintings and time periods. I will recommend her and will take her class again if possible. An excellent teacher of her subject.

Professor Taylor is engaging and fun. She expects a lot from her students, as all good professors should. She goes above and beyond what is required of a professor and provides students with amazing opportunities in and out of the classroom. She is the best professor I've had at PSU so far.

Dr. Taylor is the best professor I've had at PSU. She is very clear in expectations. The material can be intimidating, but she clearly designs tests so that students can succeed. Attendance is crucial to getting a good grade. She is engaging and highly knowledgeable. Women in the Visual Arts was a fabulous course and I would recommend it to ALL.

Prof. Taylor is hands down one of the best Art History professors I have ever taken. She demands excellence and it makes you a better student. If you work hard and put the time in it is easy to get an A. You have to go to class and do the reading. I wish I could have a Professor like her for all of my classes.

Prof. Taylor is fantastic. She is incredibly smart and passionate. I respect her so much for being so straight forward with her expectations and not going back on her expectations or changing them. I wish she taught all the ARH classes!

Comment:
I took all 3 terms of Modern Art History from Professor Taylor. She is an amazingly knowledgeable and most precise professor. She talks about the world the artist lived in, how it effected their work and how their work affected society. Amazing journey! She is punctual and expects the same of her students. Great class!!

Very intelligent woman. She is a tough cookie, and expects a lot of her students. Have not yet had an exam, but am assuming it will be quite difficult considering the immense amount of information gone over in class. Frankly, she frightens me!

Dr. Taylor is a fantastic professor. Her classes aren't easy but you get so much more out of them. Her lectures are interesting and demonstrate her incredible knowledge of the subject. I wish she taught more subjects so I could take her again.

I liked her class because she was always very prepared and really knew what she was talking about. She always seemed to have an answer to our many many questions. The lectures were always high quality. The tests weren't super hard but the final paper was graded hard.

Modern Art History. She knows her****. There's so much info that it seems like the tests would be really hard, but they end up being really easy.

She seems a bit stiff at first but frankly, this woman knows her stuff. She is clearly passionate about art and seems to enjoy when discussions get good and clearly is annoyed with silly comments in-class. I learned a lot from her.
