He made Biomed the best! I'm sad he retired my senior year but those 3 years were awesome. He is extremely dedicated and just loves his students. <3

Mr. Nichols is one of those teachers you'll always remember. He's a really good guy, and he's funny. Getting a pat a day on the head is pretty nice coming from a teacher. ^__^

He birdwalks a lot, and tells hilarious anecdotes. I really liked his physiology class. It was one of the best experiences in my life and I owe it to him.

He is awesome. I had him 7 years ago and he really inspired me to become a physician. I only wish I could've been in his bio-med class. Prepared me for Universi

Could be the most influential teacher to ever walk the campus of AHS. What he brought to the bio-med program and his years of hard work are remarkable.

Great stories in class. Even though he made us wake up to be at school at 7am, he was ok. Biomed helped alot with my presentation skills and my research papers. He can be hard to deal with at times but a good man in general. --c/o 2002 Biomed 1998-2002

You have to love this man. I had him for physiology and I have him for biomed for 4 years. He's always there when I need him to explain things, letters of rec, and for advice. He also inspired me to work in the science research field. I'll miss him.
