He's so intimidating. A 5'5 skinny guy with glasses, but he's sooo strict and humorless it's pretty intense. He'll write you up in a snap. And what's with him? Thought he retired,but he visits like every day-with a ID tag on!
i h8 him. always says look 2 @ ur "shedual" cant just TELL u when somethings due. we never do creative writing. says other teachers r bad but wont look @ himself. grades down w/ sprit. so miserable i gave up. average in 70s.
I hated Mr. Friia at the beginning of the year. However, once I decided to do the work, I realized he is the best English teacher in the building and my grade went to a 90.
If you think Mr. Conroy is brilliant, you should take Mr. Friia's class. He's amazing!!!
Great teacher. Taught me a lot. Hard grader but i did my part. Good man.
Mr. Friia was a pretty amazing human. I had him three years running and the man rarely failed to amaze me. Knows everything there is to know about life.
Mr Friia is one of the few teachers who I can come to with my life problems as well as any subject I'm having difficulty in. He is a brillant man.
you people obviously don't have the same Friia I have for English. Needs to go.
Mr. Friia is a great Latin teacher, not many continue their education beyond a master's degree, but he has.
Best teacher....let me lay down and sleep during every class. Got out of other classes all the time....my kind of teacher. :)
Those of you who hate Mr. Friia now will appreciate him when you are in your college freshman English class and are the only one who knows how to write!
He's cool but take it easy on the projects thank you!
I had him a long time ago, but I'll never forget his class, interesting detention assignments, or the awesome trips to Europe!
friia is the coolest.sure hes hard however he is doin it for ur benefit now i have tons of new words in my vocabulary look forward to latin U RULE
amazing person...thank you for helping me understand life, the best teacher in CHS.
Mr. Friia is a good teacher in some ways. I learned a lot in his class this year, and it was the hardest i think i ever worked to do good in a class befor.
Mr. Friia was the best teacher! Hes tough but a nice guy and a great teacher. Its for your own benefit.
I finally discovered why we bother to read literature. Thank you Mr. Friia.
Mr.Friia is an amazing teacher.those who oppose only say because their futures will consist of a gas pump.He is by far an outstanding teacher and i am greatful.
Mr. Friia may be challenging,but he is very fair. He is a brilliant man and has a lot more to say then just English or Latin. He opens your mind to new ideas.
hes probs the best teacher, because he actually TEACHES.
When I had Mr. Friia, I thought he was impossible. However, by the end of the year, I discovered he had given me more in one year than I had in my previous ten
anyone who doesnt like him should try taking latin - its such a great class, he's so different, and we have so much fun! (and we learn a lot, of course)
definately the best teacher i have ever had... he's helped me understand life in school and out... his words will always stay with me, so thanks to you mr friia
i feel that mr friia is by far the best teacher in CHS.i learn more in his latin class than in any other, not only of latin, but of a myriad of subjects as well
