Love him or hate him, it depends on you, not him. He's a gifted educator passionate about music caged in with a full room of self-centered hormonal broken raucous children who can't see past then ends of their noses looking for an easy grade. See the real man and all he represents and you will earn the mentor so needed and prized by the next generation of performance musicians.
Mr.stickley is a knowledgeable band director. His goal is really to make you better. He will knows he can come off as strange even making jokes at him self. But he really cares about his students.
I used to be a student of Mr. Stickley a long time ago. What I can say about him is that he is extremely passionate about music, and I loved having him as a band teacher. He used to lead our Jazz band in the evenings.. that's where I could really tell that he loves the craft.
Somewhat like him as a person, don't like him as a teacher. He picks on the baritone player everyday when he doesn't do anything wrong. He made a joke about cancer in class. That is not okay. I've had nine relatives pass from cancer, I might have cancer, so the fact that he would say something so serious as a joke in class, I am not okay with it. Plus, the piece we were playing was dedicated to a girl who passed with cancer, so he made fun of a dead girl. Not okay.
I can't stand him. I'm surprised I gave him some good ratings. Having him last period is honestly just a killer. The songs we play absolutely blow and he will always find someone to pick on for like the whole year. Oh ya and MOOD SWINGS my god it's annoying glad I'm done with his class. And Btw person who gave him a rating before me he is far from a cool dude
mr. stickily is a very dynamic person (pun intended). he is a cool dude but having him last period can be tough. he does get very moody, but always follows up with love. a very weird and interesting person. I can read anything he writes on the board but he is a very straightforward teacher that I respect very much
I am a former student and of Mr. Stickley's. He was my high school band director. He was hands down the best teacher I ever had. I am lucky to have learned from him, and anyone else would be too. He is extremely knowledgeable about music, and he takes his job seriously. He cares very much about teaching music and about the kids learning it. Many of my best memories from high school are from the band he directed
Horrible teacher. Only reason I kept band was for bligh and stevens
One of the worst teachers in Herricks. I tried to quit many times but I wanted to keep playing my instrument so 9th period was basically hell for me. He picks favorites and I was probably the student he hated the most. But cry if your taking band.
Good, but strict. Has a tough job dealing with so many students at once.
He is a pretty good conductor, I really improved over the years. However, he likes to talk too much and he tries to be cool. We legit spend at least half the period learning about Wisconsin or whereve
i used to think he was scary at first but i realized that hes actually always willing to help its just that no one ever asks for help hes always there when you need him
he makes up words and never has any idea what he is saying. he makes me want to quit band. his stupidity baffles me every single day i attend his class.
Once you get on his good side you're set. Takes band very seriously, but always willing to help students who need it
GREAT teacher. Strives for excellence from his students more than any teacher I've known, and brings them to it more often than not. He'll expect a lot from you, and he should.
interesting and hard nut to crack... when you really like him he does something to annoy you, when you hate him he does something nice- Brilliant conductor!
major MAJOR mood swings but overall a pretty groovy guy.
mr stickely's pretty cool, but the mood swings hafta go, and its even worse having him first period
MR STICKLEY..UR MAD COOL...I LOVE HEARING UR STORIES WEN U TELL US IN BAND...I LOVE UR FUNNY JOKES....YES I MAY B FAILIN UR CLASS BUT I STILL LOVE COMIN!
Very cool and funny but he talks in "band language" so i dont always know what he is talking about
The best teacher in all of existence!!!! Has helped me reach my full academic potential. I will never ever forget him for what he has done to help me.
Stickley's a great conductor, and is nice and funny sometimes. But his mood swings often make him act derisively...who wants to play for a guy like that?
Let us gamble in the back room without taking our dice away
He is an amazing teacher and has helped me tremendously with my musical ability
