Nickels was probably the best teacher ever and one of the coolest people to ever exist. May he retire in peace.

No one really knew Nickels, but what we did know was awesome. He worked at NASA, loved New Zealand, had a dog named Kiwi , and was very liberal. He may have not been the best, but he made for a great story and that's all I ever needed.

I had Mr. Nickels in middle school many years ago and have never forgotten him. He was tough, but I think that's why he's so memorable. Quirky? Yes, which I now know is a good thing.

Kind of weird, but fun class. Study hard and pay attention. Great teacher. We had some interesting discussions in his class. He actually does care, even if he acts like he doesn't. Pick his brain. He know a tone!! He used to

I really dont like him...if i had him as a teacher my whole high school career...he would probably end up convincing me i cant get in to college...he needs to learn that people have lives outside of school too

just take notes for the pop quizzes (and then actually look over them). just make an effort and you will absorb so much, youll be surprised, especially regarding world citizens. and feel free to talk to him about anything

He may seem gruff but he's really just a great big teddy bear inside. How can you not love a man who eats pizza 24/7? Lots of work but worth it! You learn TONS! Take this class.

Nickels is actually a really nice guy if you ever go in and talk to him- he's really lonely and will talk for as long as you want to. Not as nice in class.

I learned so much from Nickels. He's funny and a great teacher. World Geo H is one of the most worthwhile classes at East, I think.
