Mr. Nolan is the best teacher I've ever had. He is so smart and teaches us in a way that gets all of the information in but is still fun. He really cares about his students and what they have to say. He is always available for extra help and really helps you understand a book, explicate a poem, edit an essay, or anything you need. Anyone who gets him is really lucky!
