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.

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

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.

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

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.
