Firnenos class was pretty chill. But 90% of it was ranting on about being in the marines or about football, if you're going to have him, be ready to hear a million sports analogies.

Not a perfect teacher, but his class got me 3 hours of college credit in physics and now I am an engineering major. He's decent... I've had worse science teachers at franklin, I suppose.

He was my football coach. He sucked as coach, and teacher alike. He is a nice guy though, he just can't teach. Though I didn't learn any physics, I did learn how to land a helicopter that has been shot down.

I don't know why everyone calls him a bad teacher. He's not - he's pretty good. I went to district rally qualifying over AP Physics students b/c of him.

Good news: the class is a no-brainer. Bad news: It's 'cuz you learn nothing. Depends on what kind of student you are, I guess.
