During a recent discussion about death and loss, I suddenly thought of my former English teacher, Mr. Nickerson, whom I had the brief pleasure of knowing somewhere about 10+ years ago, only to just discover he passed away last year. I remember him being absent most of the year he was my English teacher, which I now believe was related to his cancer. While he was somewhat intimidating, he was very impressionable, funny, and an excellent educator. Thank you for your time; you will be/are missed.
I just found out Mr. Nickerson passed away today. He was by far the best English teacher I ever had. His class was challenging, yet it improved my writing and I always looked forward to his class. He always teased and picked on me and I look back at how much I miss that. I will never forget Mr. Nickerson's funny and sassy comments to the students and his teaching style. The love and respect I have for Mr. Nickerson will be something I will never let go.People like him, you can't find often. RIP.
One of the best High School teachers I had.
HE WAS SO AWESOME
He is one of the best teachers a person could have in their entire education. Some teachers can be friendly and secretly not care for their job, but Mr. Nickerson never pretended to be kind and secretly not care. He's the best.
I learned so much. He is easily the best teacher I have ever had. You get to the point where if you got a bad grade, the only reason you'd be upset would be because you dissapointed him. Best. Teacher
HE's a boss.HE's a boss.HE's a boss.HE's a boss.HE's a boss.HE's a boss.HE's a boss.HE's a boss.HE's a boss.
Easily my favorite teacher in my educational career. He has a tough class but he is SO helpful with the material, you can tell he actually knows what hes talking about. My favorite class of the day!
He's an awesome English teacher. And he doesn't care if you write in the margins....
Hilarious teacher. I learn a lot and he is really good at keeping the class under control. He has interesting and helpful projects. Excellent, excellent unique teacher.
One of my all-time favorite teachers. He's always helpful and funny. Keep on truckin', Nickerson
Our two kids are absolute opposite personalities, but they agree that Mr. Nickerson is one of their all-time favorite teachers. They learned a lot, challenging classes.
I mean, he was a good teacher, and I actually learned a lot from him.
Amazing teacher. He's never rude, but he won't put up with any nonsense. Funny, intelligent and caring.
Nickerson rocks my socks off! He is an amazing teacher. Inspiring, encouraging, and hilarious.
My favorite teacher. He points out other points of views and encourages thinking for yourselves. He's witty and intelligent and assigns homework that is actually relevent. THE BEST
Awesome teacher with great heart. Teaches out of the box.
One of the greatest teachers I've had in high school. American literature has never been so intresting!!!!
want a teacher thats awesome...beg for this guy...he's down to earth and can make jokes about students and teachers like no other! Very much enjoyed the trial!!
i think that the reason he is such a good teacher is that he really knows what he is talking about and passes it on to us.
Nickerson was awesome! I'm glad he was my teacher, he made me laugh, and I always looked forward to his class.
By far one of my favorite teachers at Kamiak. Extremely intelligent guy who knows his stuff.
