One day I walked into class and there was a skeleton with blood and police tape around it. I got to do CSI. Love her class so much!

Ms. Friesen is an awesome teacher! She knows a ton about chemistry and is passionate about what she teaches. She makes the curriculum interesting and helps to make the course extremely enjoyable. I always feel well prepared for tests and know that I have learned a lot. She is extremely caring towards her students and always available for extra help. Such a great person and teacher!

Ms Friesen is super cool and pretty chill, and she totally knows her stuff. Watch out for those tests though, they're deceptively hard and she doesn't *do* half marks. The test questions are usually way harder than the practice questions. She's really nice but she teaches in a confusing way, so you really have to learn a lot of it on your own.

one of the nicest teachers at the school. doesnt necessarily teach all concepts well in class, but will work with you afterwards as long as it takes to get it.

Probably not the best teacher, but is too cool for words. She's the Staff Advisor for the Juggling Club, too.
