He was one of the best teachers I had. In 6th, I think he hated me. That's because when I did presentations, I wouldn't volunteer to go first. And when I wenwas it was bad. When I got to 7th, he really started to like my presentations. He even said I should do the play... twice! If you want to get onto his good side, just go out there! Volunteer to go first, or second, or third or whatever. You also need to be clear, arms to the sides, not in pockets or behind, and try your best. Great teacher.

Alright. I'm going to set the record straight. Mr. Frimmer is terrifying, but it's a good terrifying. I haven't had him this year, but I did for two years so I feel like I know. Yes, he picks favorites, but no, he's not intentionally scary. He actually cares about how his students do. He was really good for my anxiety, and when I had to present a science presentation earlier this week, he came up to me and wished me good luck, and told me to relax. He's a good person.

Frimmer picks favorites and isn't afraid to show it. He will judge you by your family members. And if he dosent like your presentations in class there is no way you can get into the play no matter how good you are

He is hard if doesn't like you, all though he likes most of his students. He's funny and class flies bye. The only problem is he's really strict about being late.

Mr. Frimmer thinks he's better than everyone, and is rude. He does pick favorites. If you're his favorite student you'll get an A no matter how bad you are. If you're not, he'll be tough on you, and even if you do good. Lastly, he lets his emotions get the best of him whenever he feels like someone is disrespecting him, or challenging his authority as "the boss".
