I was one of Jim's friends in high school in the 1960's. By his example, he was teaching others even then. I am so happy so many got to meet him. His students are very lucky he walked thier earth.
I can count on one hand the number of teachers, professors, and managers who have had a deep and lasting impact on my life... the type of people whom you think of during both challenging and inspiring
The 1983 year book was dedicated to him. How many students did he inspire?
I had Mr. Nowack as a teacher back in 96', his Eastern Religions Course. He is one of those teachers that has a lasting impact on your life. A great person and a fantastic teacher.
Never had him as a teacher but he is doing incredible things. He's compeletly selfless and wonderful.
Still think about things he taught me- this is 5 years later. His impact is for life.
Amazing teacher. And i know he is going to do some amazing things in africa.
One of my favorite teachers, back when he was fairly new (1978-1979). Never forgot his energy or his saying "Be Psyched"!! Awesome guy!
made a SUPA course kinda boring but we still had fun learning from him and listening to his stories...cares about his students tremendously and deserves respect
Best HS teacher I've ever met. My privilege to be Jim Nowak's student in 93! Boundless energy and enthusiasm. "Outside the box" before it was a catch-phrase.
Best teacher ever...You learn and his classes are fun. He's very approachable and a great teacher.
Amazing man! Learning everything that you can from him, he is the best teacher you could possibly have!
i've graduated but still come back to fhs to see jim... he's an awesome guy. use him as a resource and go to him to talk... he's busy but will take time out for you when you need him.
Awesome guy, I almost stole 20 bucks from him today.
