I had mrs nickel as my art teacher for a few years and consider myself incredibly fortunate for that. Mrs nickel is a teacher who is knowledgeable and passionate about her course. I suppose a lot of students are "terrified" of how intimidating she can be, however, in part I think part of it is just her sense of humor. She is a woman who, when treated with respect, is fair, kind-hearted and just lovely to have a conversation with. My favourite teacher!

Mrs. Nickel is definitely knows a lot about the subjects she teaches. She gives good constructive criticism. I really admire her, but in class she would walk around the class and compliment people's work and would give them feedback all the time, while I would sit and do my work and she would walk past but say nothing which really worried me! Besides that, she is quite intimidating, but she is a very good teacher if you are serious about the subject(s) she teaches you!

Honestly, I have a lot of respect for Mrs. Nickel. She is definitely very skilled and helpful. I think that she is a great teacher. But also, she is very intimidating. Sometimes a bit of yelling is warranted but if almost all of the kids in a class are scared then there is something wrong. I personally find her very insightful and she sometimes shows humor but half the time I am terrified. Overall a great teacher though and actually my favorite...

Mrs. Nickel is a pretty good teacher but is very hard to impress. I was literally so nervous when I had to ask a question or hand something in. Very intimidating. I wish she had empathy.

Her classes were hard to sit through, she would often play favorites and bash americans. I found this behaviour inappropriate and wished i had taken action whilst still a student.
