Mrs. Niddrie is one of the best teachers at Torrey Pines High School. Personality wise, she is so so sweet and kind and funny. She really cares about each and every one of her students and takes the time to get to know each of her students. She is extremely knowledgeable and if you have her as a teacher you are so lucky.
Take intro to law! Or I guess they're gonna call it "legal studies" because they want more people to take the class. Despite the fact that it sounds boring, it really is an interesting class. It's an easy way to get involved in things like mock trial and we get to see a lot of different guest speakers who are all very cool. The lectures are very interesting and you learn a lot about how real life courts work.
Mrs. Niddrie is a great teacher and her class is one of my favorites!
Boring teaching style (powerpoints)... BUT she's the nicest teacher on campus, and debatably the most likable teacher (students hoard her room during lunch).
Knew Mrs. Niddrie from her law class and mock trial, and I can confidently say that there is no way a person can possibly dislike her. Her law class, albeit a bit dull, has some of the best projects (class Mock Trial comes to mind). Take her class if you need to get rid of a CTE requirement.
Jackie is an amazing lady! I took her law clas during my senior year. I am the type to be interested in law/government etc. although I know it is boring for most high school students. She is very knowledgable! She really understands what it is like to be in high school (she has kids). Really opens the clas up to some amazing topics, Constitution, state/federal law/court system, etc. She isn't a boring teacher like you would think for a law teacher. She is a lot of fun, we went on 2 field trips (really fun down to the courts to watch real trial lawyers) and shows great movies (clasics) [12 Angry Men>my favorite] and enjoys her clas. At the end of the year we did a Mock Trial. Great experience, I got prosecution on a murder case and an honestly pretty bad team (both sides wanted defense since mock trial is vague but we lost the coin toss lol.) Anyways we ended up winning with a guilty verdict (only because I was one of the two lawyers and studied the handbook pretty hard and took it extremely serious). The point is it was a great asignment, if you take it serious. Some kids never will and do ruin it for others but what are you going to do its high school ... All and all it was a blessing to meet Mrs. Niddrie, really one of my favorite teachers looking back now that I'm done with high school.
She is the best teacher ever! I wish I could give her more than a 100%. I had her for law and her class is fun AND educational. You go on lots of field trips and have movie days. You learn a lot, but with her teaching skills it's hard not to get an A. It's like having the perfect balance between having that super fun teacher and the serious educational one. She doesn't just teach the curriculum, she goes above that. Her class have been really eye-opening for me. :)
Mrs. Niddrie is an awesome teacher. She knows a lot about what she teaches and lets us have movie days. She also seems like she genuinely likes what she does a lot and cares about her students. Very little homework. If you study and pay attention in class, you will do fine!
Ms. Niddrie is absolutely amazing! She is a great teacher and she is really funny. Definitely a better class having her as a teacher. If you try in her class, then you will do well. She is definitely one of the best teachers on campus! :)
Niddrie is the best teacher ever, sign up for this class, be outgoing and get to know her she made it really a great class and lots of cool field trips(one you get free food and paid $10) overall a great teacher and its always fun in that class
teaches the most random subjects.. still doesn't recognize me but she tries. nice i guess.
Best teacher ever!!! she knows a lot and teaches a lot in a very fun and interesting way! i had her for Marketing and she told us lots of funny problems and was very understanding and helped me to adjust since I just moved from another country. Very talkative and just an awesome person!
Awesome teacher. I'm really into law and it's ashame that they won't let her teach it again because it was a great class. Now, she's helping us with Mock Trial, so we still get to work with her. Take her classes if you have the chance, they're really fun.
ahah awsome law class u gonna love the mock trial but to bad they not havin it next year lol well i won my mock trial!
Wow, Mrs. Niddrie is awesome. She can relate to students very well, and explains things really clearly. I'm currently in her class and already I am finding daily uses for the things she teaches us. She makes learning about law (a typically boring topic) fun. I love her! The mock trial sounds great and I can't wait for it. I encourage people interested (or even not interested) to try Principles of Law.
only been in her class for a couple of days and already love her. she makes law so much more fun and exciting. all the fun things u do in her class. she is awesome.
Best accounting teacher, and best teacher I've had last year
sooo nice u can talk to her about anything. she is pretty easy and very understanding. love her.
She was by far one of my favorite teachers! Very comprehensive and easy to understand
OMG I <3 her class so MUCH!! And she's the sweetest!!
She is so funny and sweet!!! Her law quiz is very tricky; however, if you work hard for the mock trial, A is not hard to get. She changed my life forever.
mrs. niddrie is the best teacher in the whole world! i've never met a better teacher in my life!!! u should pray to get her- seriously. and her class was awsome
