He was probably the smartest man I have ever met. I learned more not understanding anything in that class than I have my whole life.
HE DA BEST he is sure to make you feel stupid while also filling you with a whole whole whollleeeee bunch of knowledge!!
Inspiring teacher, encouraged creative thinking, brought literature alive, cared for students.
He's a good teacher, but I think his reputation among students is a little overblown. Every one thinks he's the smartest person alive because he talks about greek philosophy and Harold Bloom. During
mr. nelson was an amazing teacher. yes, his class was very challenging, but you take SO much away from it. he's the kind of guy i'd like to just go out to lunch with and listen to his stories.
I love Nelson!! He was an awesome teacher. He is one of the most brilliant people I've ever met. I loved his lectures; I learned so much! I wish all my teachers were like Nelson.
Nelson is the reason I went into teaching. His class was challenging but informative. I graduated in 1987 and still credit Nelson for my success in college and in my teaching career.
Awesome teacher, he was one of the best teachers I ever had. He is very philosophical and intellectual. He has a very special way about teaching. Anyone that has him will get a lot out of him.
Nelson is absolutely amazing. His class it tough, but it'll benefit you a lot. He is probably one of the most, if not the most, intelligent people I will ever know. His ego if hilarious.
i graduated from bel air in '03, and one of the people i miss the most is lord nelson. he is a wonderful teach and everyone at bahs should take his class, incl. some teachers
he is an amazing teacher. I feel like he really helped me to look deeper into things. I have found humanities to have been extremely helpful. My absolute favorite teacher :)
hes pretty cool...he tends to ramble during lessons, but if you talk to him personally hes definitely very very cool.
Nelson offers a great class... must have a great tolerance to be able to stay awake during his in depth and thorough lessons. Above all, phenomenal teacher.
GREAT teacher, nice guy, class can be pretty tough sometimes, but hes always willing to help :)
His class is all about learning. If you pay attention to what he's saying and take notes, it's really easy, although some people do have a tough time.
Nelson is one of the smartest men I've ever met. His class is easy if you pay attention, take notes, and do the work. Awesome teacher and great guy.
Very intellectual, great sense of humor, not a lot of busy work; mostly quality over quantity assignments. Shaped my idea of what a good teacher is.
He is kind of annoying, and I don't really like him, but he can be easy-ish sometimes. I wish he wasn't so weird.
Nelsons a good teacher,but can be tough and unclear too,he will help me in the future i know that for sure
Awesome teacher, very fun and interactive classes, inspirational!
Greatest teacher I ever had. Truly inspirational. Helped make me who I am today.
