She is really passionate about her students and not a harsh grader. She struggles with keeping the discipline in her class a little bit. She would be great, but she has some weird ideas. She forces students to hand write 6 page papers just because she wants them to practice writing...Also she gets a little bit to passionate about the subject and overly emotional.

She can be a bit disorganized, but overall she is one of the sweetest and most helpful teachers I've had. She really and truly wants everyone to do well, and she cares about the opinions of the class.

The problem with Ms. Frydman is that her ego is HUGE and her intellect is [small]. She loves being an authority figure. One of those people who shouldn't have power because they abuse it.

Made me truly love English! Very open to new ideas and opinions on things and is just a very happy person! Though you may not always stay on topic in class, I have had some of the most interesting and intellectually engaging conversations and discussions in her class. FANTASTIC TEACHER!!!!

By far one of my favorite teachers. There's a good amount of busy work, but if you pay attention to the directions, there's a lot of ways to lazily complete that work and still get the same grade as a kid who spent 3 hours on it. She doesn't believe in grades, so participation, homework, and tests/paers are each worth 33% of your grade, very fair. Gives a lot of papers, but do it her way (which isn't hard) and you'll be fine. Lets you make up any paper for a better grade. AMAZING TEACHER.

She is a very nice person, and an ok teacher. There is a lot of busy work, like charts and millions of pages in a journal about nothing.. but if you do it thoroughly then you can fail her one word vocab tests that she is too lazy to correct herself or her SAT multiple choice questions with clearly more than one answer, without an reprecusions. Her class is super easy, and she will think your great if, when she assigns reductions, you decorate it with lots of pictures and make it very artistic

She's such a nice person outside of class, but kind of a bad teacher. You do some cool things, but we waste so much time in class and there is a lot of busy work. You can still get an A though if you don't do all of the book charts thoroughly so prioritize and don't waste your time. She gives a lot of extra credit!

since the person below can't spell ridiculous, there is probably some other reason that they didn't learn anything. My writing got alot better, even though i don't remember her explaining anything. Shes very nice but her grading system is a little strange.. i don't think she knows how to use the grading program on her computer. We had no discussions in class, and most of it was a waste of time, but she was nice..
