My name is Laura Winer and what I should say about Nixon is that he is really helpful, clear and humorous. He makes me laugh all the time in class which I and everyone enjoys ( except for Eric Gershman ). Rachel is right, stay away from Eric because he will you several reasons why Nixon is terrible but he is actually a great teacher and a person to be with.
Thank you Rachel for finding this first and more people are going to write a rating. HeHeHeHe

Terrible teacher. He is like a dictator. Does not teach anything. Tortures specific people in the class.

Mr. Nixon is awesome. If you don't care in class, then be prepared to have a target on your head... If he asks you a question and you don't know the answer, say "subdivide". Works like a charm!

Nixon Tps: Don't drop out of a band; Don't interupt him anytime and anywhere; Use good manners; Pretend like you like him and his course(even if you do not); Do not talk back; Do not try to correct him(Let him be right); Borrow your instrument during the day if you can(He may not be there after school). If you follow all these tips and play your instrument half-decent you will do fine.

Band is a class you waste time on once a week so you get to miss school some days and get a 90 in. It's not a class to do work in. Mr. Nixon has a lot to learn.
