Hickey is critical, harsh, and blunt. He made Economics an at least semi-enjoyable experience. If you do the work and ask him questions, you'll do fine and he'll like you.

Hickey is a complicated man. He knows so much and loves world history and its very obvious. However, I and many others disagree with his teaching style. He yells alot, so watch for that. He also has a short temper. No tests in his class, just essays that most of the class struggles with because his analysis is quite confusing. Only a handful of kids in the class REALLY do well. Unfortunately he is a great guy outside of class. Funny too. Wish I could say better.

This guy is the smartest person I have ever met. He remembers basically every event in world history and is able to come up with complicated analysis on the spot. He is very funny. If you don't get it though, his class will be a nightmares for you. I highly recommend him to smart people, because you will look forward to his class as the only challenging class in school and he rarely gives mandatory homework. Also, 36th chamber of the Shaolin is a great movie!

He is mean, not scary, just mean. He tries so hard to be intimidating but just winds up being cruel. He really knows his stuff, however.

Hickey is a great teacher, simply because he prepares you. He makes you learn the knowledge by yourself, a characteristic you MUST know how to do in college, and then he aids in making anelysis and developing opinions. He is pretty lenient in his work load and you just have to apply yourself a little bit to experience success in his class.

Omits entire topics for Regents yet he spent the last semester playing kickball, occupying Wall St, missing school, etc. The 4th quarter grade was the Regents but he did minimal prep with all that time. For a geography class, he should have gone over maps. Extra credit not worth the trouble - I saw an art exhibit and read a boring book and did a paper on it but he only counted the book and gave 1 point extra credit - don't know if he read it. Lazy, apathetic, sarcastic. difficult, unhelpful!

Seriously my favorite and the best teacher I've ever had. I had him for 10th grade AP World History and I wish I had him in 9th grade. He is a bit tough, but that helps in teaching you so many things about history and pattersn, essay writing and working hard. Plus he has the best stories and is infinitely entertaining.

Hickey is the best teacher. You can have fun and still learn in his class. I looked foward to goin to his class everyday! He gives alot of work but if you stay in his class all year you have learned so much and are so prepared for the ap test. He is my favorite teacher, i wish i could have his again this year.
