she improved my writing SO much. very blunt and honest. i remember the first grade she gave me on my essay was a D+. comments were like: "WHAT IS THIS?" "BS" "NO" but they all paid off in the end. if you put a little effort in the class you'll easily get a B. A's are alot harder to get.

the toughest part of her class is writing impressive essays, and she gives out a crapload of hw, but you learn to deal with it because she's a wonderful teacher. she might seem strict but deep down shes really a sweet old lady with occasional insulting jokes that crack everyone up. and if one ever does well enough to impress her, the praise she gives makes that person feel extremely confident. all in all, its a shame shes retiring this year, b/c she has changed a lot of student's lives, and i'll miss her.

I didn't like her, after the first few weeks she would favor the students who were the best writers and ignore the rest of us. She didn't even bother to learn all of our names throughout the semester. The class itself really isn't that difficult, you just need to spend time studying for tests & preparing for essays. She grades essays pretty hard, you can't just write all this fluff like before and expect a good grade. You just need to build up the motivation to do well yourself, because she won't help.

That class was hard but she is a great teacher. I liked her a lot, and she taught me a lot about writing. If you do the work and listen to what she says, you'll pass.

Fairly overrated, the truth is she's rather lackluster, doesn't really motivate her students to enjoy writing, easiest way is to sparknote everything and ace all the scantron tests cuz they're easy

Mrs. Freeds class may be one of the hardest you take but it is well worth it. Mrs Freed has reinvented me as a writer and i am forever greatful. While you may hate life during her class life is so much easier afterwards.

When she expects a lot out of you, you really become a hard worker...so you become a better writer and stuff. and she's pretty funny too.

No doubt Freed is hands down THE BEST english teacher I ever had. She expects a lot from her Honors students but we ALL came out better writers with her help.

i must say her class ins't the easiest class in the world, but when one "weeps for it" you can learn a GREAT deal of writing from this teacher.
