I had Mr. Friedman freshman year, second term. He was a very hard teacher. He was very strict and had high expectations. He is a hard teacher to please, but he taught. You actually learned from a teacher in Midwood. Yea he might have annoyed you or caused you to stress, but in the end you learned something. He wasn't my favorite but he isn't bad at all.

He's a really good teacher. he focuses on vocab and essay writing. To do well in his class you have to actually read the book. No sparknotes. if you do all of that you'll do really well.

I had him for Poetry, & he seemed really tough and boring. He WAS tough and boring, but once you figure out what he expects from you, it's easy to do the assignments & get a good grade. I went from getting an "n" in the 1st semester to getting a 97. He gave a lot of work, but it improved my writing skills. He also truely values your work, even if it doesnt seem like it,.
