I think he is a great teacher who taught practical uses of science. Also a very nice guy in general. A teacher you will likely never forget.
teaches you about the real world. rants a lot and doesn't do any science but when you grad you'll look back and understand that he taught and prepared you more for the real world than any other teacher did
My favourite planning teacher. He has a very very detailed(very) and clear teaching style. He was able to show how we could apply what we learned in-class into our helpless childish selfish, stupid, creative, c+ graded teenaged lives. He always encouraged me and others not to go to university and go to a community college because statistics says that C students become billionaire and A students become homeless. -Whit E. Adidas
Like many other posters on here I thought Dean was a joke. It wasn't until I had been graduated for almost 10 years until I realized how good of a teacher he really is. He made everything he taught into stories, stories which from my view at the time were off topic. Once I graduated and was out in the real world his knowledge was clear. If you actually want to learn something you will remember 10 years down the road. He IS your teacher!
Good luck learning anything in his class. All he ever talks about is hockey and his life. He also makes sexist comments but he says them as a "joke". Honestly the only good things about having him for a teacher is that his class is basically a free block and he teaches you stuff about the real world. In all honesty he would be better suited as a counselor not a science teacher.
So, you got Mr. Nociar in Science 8-10 huh? let me give you a little word of advise.... swap the class while you still can. He's a nice guy but he will teach you nothing, just talk a lot then (sometimes) assign textbook work. no experiments. no nothing. Your class will always be behind in a good amount of chapters and only complete 2 Units in the school year.
Basically you're screwed for any future Science course.
Alright well Mr.Nociar was a really nice guy and he was never really mean but... he didn't teach. Like anything. Except life lessons. Me and my friends used to call it 'Life Lessons 9'. I now sit in science ten extremely confused because he never got to all of the units, and I'm not a self directed learner. Mr. Nociar is a really great guy, and would probably make a good business man, but science with him was a nightmare.
pretty hottible, his class is a free block and all he does it talk
All you lunds complaining about having a free block
we have quizzes that he doesn't teach us and he gives us homework and doesn't explain how to do it vocabulary he gives us we dont understand how to do it because he doesn't explain how to do it.he tries to give examples about science from his personal life im very worried about the final exam because other classes are on chapter 8 and we are still on chapter 4
He's okay.... He's nice an pd all but he talks a lot... But what's cool is his wife was my teacher in grade 7
Amazing teacher! Seems to be off topic but then it connects back with the lesson and strangely it seems to teach us more than any teacher could hope for! Love Mr. Nociar!
Mr. Nociar isn't such a great teacher. We had almost no homework, no projects, and he always got off track and started talking about anything but science. On the other hand, however, there was a lot of free time to do homework from other teachers. It's pretty much a free block.
Terrible teacher! You have to basically teach yourself to get a good mark in this class. He talks the whole class about his life and at the last 5 minutes of class he gives us the homework. Also, don't bother doing the homework he never checks.
heard from many that he never teaches, just talks about hockey and himself and at times bores his students to no end
If you have Mr. Nociar for anything else but Earth Science, then you're all screwed. But when it comes to Earth Science 11 and 12. We only got up to the first unit and the semester has already ended. I would be sitting right in front of his seat, and he knows I'm sleeping but he honestly let's me. Chillest teacher ever. But if you seriously have him for anything but Earth Science ... Yeah you are done for
He provides you with an outline which in the end you dont complete. Other classes finish the entire textbook while his class is very behind. For the final, its not really a final its a chapter test. He doesn't teach you AT ALL! He constantly talks about, hockey, current events, and his trips he's been on, and at the last 5 minutes of class, he tells you ur homework. You don't learn anything FROM HIM. You just read and learn from the text book.
Speaks about everything from a white privileged male's point of view. Very discouraging. Close-minded.
He was probably the best science teacher ever. Too bad he can't teach and constantly rants about his life and pays no attention to the course.
Best Teacher eveeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeer
Class is very disorganized - expected to write the same final as other classes but only teaches 3 chapters while others get through 8. Basically never had the Chem portion of the class because he ran out of time. Learned a lot about the Canucks and his commute. No interim report cards - not a strong teacher at all!
Terrible teacher. We don't learn anything. He rants about his life and talks about our futures and treats us like babies.
Mr nociar is my favorite teacher ever! He doesnt giive much homework but he explains most stuff in class, but you must *listen*
This guy needs to learn how to teach. Everyday off topic and feel bad for the students who are attending to his class seeking to learn about the information they have in their hands which calls textbo
He doesn't teach at all, he just talks.Therefore he gives you some slack and it is very easy to do your work in class, but he is very annoying and does not explain things to people if they dont get it
mr.nociar's awesome!!!!!!!.............he was very entertaining, but wasn't really helpful though. now that the semesters chaning i might even miss his class.
Best science teacher ever. Always finds a way to entertain the class while teaching something interesting at the same time.
Well homework checks were a bummer but other than that it was an off topic class that related to the topics eventually. I thought he was a great teacher overall.
super nice teacher but talked too much and wasn't very good at helping kids who weren't good at science.
Probably one of the best teachers I've ever had. He taught me how to win an arguement.
he is a very fun teacher and funny he tells you a lot of things that can help you in the future he would be great as a motivational speaker
hes a great teacher...he goes off topic a bit, but i learn more things from his class the nall my classes combined...ppl who dont like nociar and his style will not love university
he's really smart & he knows a lot if you really appreciate what he has to teach you, then you'll get a lot out of it. he is confusing at times, but he makes me think from another persepective!
very funny teacher... he talks a lot in class and it seems like it never relates to class but strangley it does
Mr. Nociar was good and he was funny at times. I like him because he does not give a lot of homework. =D
omg does he ever stop talking? our class talked our way out of 3 tests.
Mr Nociar ROCKS! his earth science class is the best ever
Talk about a loud mouth, i have never been in his class but my chem class is beside his class and he is just an ignorant joke that doesnt teach anything relevant to science
The best Science class ever, honestly. He’s helpful, interesting, nice and shares his views on issues that most students are closed minded about.
if you mention hockey in his class you wont do any work all he talks about is hockey
awesome volleyball coach! but cant stay on topic in class =P its easy to keep him talking to not do much work that day or not enough time for a test. but yet, hes and awesome coach
Yeah he is a nice guy and all but not a really good teacher. He talks way too much and by the end of semester you are rushing to finish the material. He doesnt teach the material.
can you stfu already! no one cares about your stupid mom in new orleans so start teaching some science
talks alot... u can easily talk ur way otta a test... doesn't care wat ur doing or if u fail... hes ok but really annoying!
i love him cuse all we did was talk instead of worked!! lol! :)
Should not be allowed to be called a teacher. He doesn't teach, just talks about himself for hours. If you want to pass provincial get out of his class quick!!!
Want to learn in this class? Put on that headphone and start self-learning! Funny and cool, but slacks off MOST of the time.
all I can say is if you ever unfortunatly get Mr.Nociar transfer! unless you like to do no work and listen to him talk about his car crashs.
he can NEVER stay on topic didnt learn one thing about science...maybe if he quizzed me on hockey or something i would of gotten better..BORING clAss
He is a wonderful person and would be awesome to know outside of school, but his lessons NEVER stay on topic.
he is very confusing and can never stay on topic, he is very easy in persuading him to not talk about school if you mention hockey or food. TRY IT
I love how he talks about hockey! The classes can be a bit boring though
