I am not at Benet yet, but he was an entrance exam proctor in my classroom, and he was hilarious,well-rounded, and believed in all of us. He was very welcoming and I hope I have him if I get in to Benet

Mr. Nagis went above and beyond in every way possible. He gave great lectures that were interesting and easy to follow. He was available before school for questions regarding the homework and projects. He answered email promptly. The test material was comprehensive and fair. Extra credit opportunities were available. It will be a great loss to the Benet community when Mr. Nagis decides to retire.

Mr. Nagis is one of the best teachers you will ever have in your student career. I learned a ton in both of his classes 20 years ago. You will remember World History and America since '45 forever after taking his class.

The best professor I've ever had, including in college. Engaging, interesting, multimedia lectures, the ability to connect to the whole class, and the depth of knowledge and interest he has for his subjects is astounding. You will love any class taught by this man. Do your work and you'll go places.
