He is a great teacher until you don't catch something he says or don't understanding. As soon as this happens you either have to ask someone else or hope it wasn't important. If you try to ask him he will tell you to pay better attention to what he is saying, and if you meet him before or after school he tells you that you should have met with him sooner and makes it your fault for not understanding.

i personally liked Mr.Pickering at the beginning of the year, he was funny. but his philosophy, i find a little flawed.L Whenever there is a substitute and he leaves a confusing plan that the substitute doesn't understand(which isn't his/her fault) but he than blames us for not getting enough work done when we don't know what to do. and when the 70% of the class a bad grade for an assignment, you cant help but think, is it the students, or the teacher/the way he is teaching.

Pickering is a juicebag. Funny only if you have a 3rd grade sense of humor. Changes the assignment after you have turned it in. Bring back Patrick Daly.

Pick's a great guy but he gets off topic really easily. In his class you have to do the work; you can't just slack off. But he's really fun.

For all you whining about Western Lit, stop. That class is simply bad. In all other classes, Pick is the man you want. Great sidetracking, great teaching.

His classes are both informative and entertaining. A funny, cool guy, but not afraid to be strict when he has to be. Overall, a good teacher.

Hey pick, don't listen to some of them, just cause they can't take a joke doesn't mean you aren't a good teacher, keep up the jokes.
