I took an Earth Science class with him back in 2004. I came out of ESL and joined the regular class at the end of November. He pushed me, and let me take the earth science regents. I got a 91 on it. He was someone that was very passionate about teaching and helped people that wanted to learn. I remember him well. Great guy! I wish I can tell him thank you. I got my masters and work in a hospital as a project manager. Thank you very much Mr. Fic. You helped me and guided me in the right direction

When I first heard that I had him I was so scared! My brother had told me about him and I was so scared that I almost wanted to change my class. Once I got in his class it was great! I'm learning so much from him! Granted he's still scarey but thats only becasue he cares and wants us to do good in life! I love him! He's great! And he may not show it but you can tell that he cares about his students! Rock on Mr.Fic!

He's not that hard of a teacher, people make him that mean teacher. People think he's this guy who's really strict, but that's not how he is at all. Sometimes he can be unclear about things, but people have to learn and accept that even teachers aren't perfect.

There's a distinguishable line between being strict/expecting responsibility from students, and simply being unfair to the point that nearly 4 classes completely fail a test.The majority of the classes fail= something's wrong with the TEACHER. He never specified we had to READ from the textbook he said wasn't up to his standards in order to understand his tests. No student is asking him to care--- just some clarification on what we're expected to do would be helpful.
