BEST TEACHER EVER ! He is nice and tolerant. He explains things in the first 15 minutes or so and i would get it! lets students go over questions on the chalkboard and gives the rest of the class time to finish homework.
Sometimes he'd be out of the class because was involved with some sort of stuff like relating to the schools safety (i was never quite sure).
I totally recommend him !

I had Mr. Higgans in 2006-2008. He taught me grade 9 & 10 Enriched math. I'm not sure if Riverside is still running the Enriched program. Mr. Higgans was AWESOME! Granted, the kids in the Enriched program were supposed to be very driven but he did an awesome job teaching us. He cared about his students. He would stay after class and help. I have no complaints with him. He went above and beyond to make sure we knew what we were doing! Hope you're still teaching, Mr. Higgans!

This guy pretty much damned me in my postsecondary education because of my complete lack of fundamentals. Had him for both math and computer science and when I got to university I was completely lost in both these areas. The things that were taught in his compsci class do not carry over AT ALL to university and the the lack of challenge in his math courses made things extremely difficult in first year. For those who have this guy, read up and study on your own cause his classes are not enough.

He's actually a great teacher, unlike what others are saying about him. He prepares you for higher education quite well. Professors won't be there to babysit you all class and make sure you do well, they let you do whatever you want. Mr. Higgins has this kind of teaching style, where you have to TRY and actually do work to succeed in his class. The tests are extremely easy as the questions are very similar to ones he assigned in the textbook (and he'll often time point out which ones!).

Would put the homework questions on the board and then leave the class to go do who knows what. Doesn't deserve to be a teacher. He completely wrecked my confidence as a student in math because of how much he did Not care. Unreal.

He gave up on teaching. He teaches for 15 mins, gives homework, then takes off. Gives easy homework questions than impossible test ones. 18 people this semester are in night school who were below 70s and now have high 85s

Even though many students say he is a bad teacher, I have to disagree. He teaches the topic for a short period of time and then he goes for coffee like 6 times a period. But in the time he is teachi

Actually a great teacher. He's always willing to give extra help. His lessons are well done, and understandable. He gives the appropriate amount of work, if you do it and study you'll do great!

Recommend him for comp science but not for mah. He teaches for 15 mins, gives homework, then takes off. This is good for comp science because you get to play around with programming but bad in math.
