I've known Mr. Hicks for years and loved every minute of his science classes. He definitely made it engaging and welcoming. Even now after I've graduated he still stays in touch via Facebook and wishes me Happy Birthday. Seriously a stellar guy and teacher!
The most sincere and hard working teacher you will ever have. He goes above and beyond for his students and really cares about them. I am honored to have him as a teacher and really appreciate Honor Society that he runs because it helps out students a lot
made class fun. knew so much and made it easy to remember. would 100% recommend
Great teacher fun to be around
He is actually really nice and helpful. HE cares about his students and wants the best for each individual.
Mr. Hicks is the most dedicated teacher I have ever encountered, he consistently goes out of his way for his students and as many teachers say, his students are basically his kids. If you get along well with him you will have a great time, so long as you show him that you are dedicated to being in his class. His teaching style is not for everyone, as he is not always the most accommodating of people... NEVER MISS HIS CLASS if you value your sanity
Easily the best biology teacher, had him since grade 10 and now graduating.
The best teacher that I have ever had! Mr hicks is the most challenging and passionate educator at Beaverbrook. Who ever is lucky enough to be his student, go at it!!! Make the best out of your relationship with him and your classmates!
Best teacher ever love him so much <3 what an amazing man
THE BEST TEACHER - EVER
Did such a great job teaching all aspects of bio 20 and 30. Prepared all students very well for diplomas and Univeristy. The best teacher i have hard. Period.
Make sure you show up to class early or on time! You'll miss a quiz otherwise. He does give a lot of work, but in the long run, it'll do you good. Covered everything that was on final's and diploma's. His class is the closest to experiencing what it's like taking a class at University.
super funny, class can be hard especially with homework and his high expectations. I dont personally enjoy bio so that might of had something to do with it
This guy is the best science teacher I have ever had. He knows his stuff and taught extremely well. The guy didn't have a life outside the school.
Made biology fun! Can still remember material years later.
An excellent teacher! Looked forward to his class every day.
Mr. Hicks' high standards, humor, knowledge and passion for teaching are very evident. I was in his classes for 2 years and he taught my brother and sister- we were so lucky to be in his classes!
A very dedicated and outstanding teacher and is an amazing person! He prepared us so well for the diploma exam and I feel very prepared for university.
Took biology 20 and 30 with Mr. Hicks- greatest classes ever!
Amazing teacher. I'm not the best at science, but Mr. Hicks has been so helpful in helping me understand the difficult topics.
Great person, it's refreshing to see a teacher really love what they're doing. Although he definitely knows Biology, he doesn't do a very good job of teaching it.
This guy is hilarious, best teacher I've ever had. He actually understands his students
Gave out way too much work and was really serious when it came to doing work. His lectures took all class but they he is quiite funny and gets the point across well.
How many high school teachers have a facebook fan page? ONE. Mr Hicks is a bro and he is definitely the best guy in the world.
I have never met a teacher who is more dedicated to helping his students and preparing them for success. Because of Mr. Hicks, I also want to be a teacher.
He was one of the best teachers in the school. Really knows his stuff and prepares you for every test or diploma. The only thing is he picks favorites and you can tell.
I was in Mr. Hicks' class for the past two years. He's the most genuine, hard-working and committed teacher I've ever had.
I have never felt so prepared for a diploma exam in high school. Mr. Hicks is a gifted teacher.
The BEST of the best! Mr. Hicks truly epitomizes what excellent teaching is all about. I was in two of his classes and enjoyed them thoroughly. He is kind, funny, motivating and an exemplary person!
Outstanding person and teacher. I'm graduating this year and his class has really prepared me for university.
I would never have passed Bio 30 if I wasn't in his class. I got 52% in Bio 20 and completed Bio30 with 87% - the highest of all of my courses. A great teacher!
He was a good teacher for students who learn the way he teaches. His class was the only class I ever failed.
so amazing! his bio notes are helping me with university biology!
GREAT TEACHER!! His quizzes of the day kept me up to date with the material, he's the main reason I continued with bio20 and 30 after having him for science 10!!
He's an amazing guy, and certainly an amazing teacher for most students. However, he doesn't really seem to understand that his methods just don't work with some of us... He can't adapt.
Not the easiest teacher but quite frankly one of the best I've ever had! He's a great role model who expects a lot from you, and he should, afterall he works harder then anyone else I know.
you will only be able to appreciate how great of a teacher mr hicks is when you leave high school and meet uni profs, he spends so much time with his students its unbelievable
One of the nicest best teachers iv ever had! always trying to make us laugh. Ready to lend a hand. A teacher that shows that he honestly cares. Also hes just an over great guy.BEST
He was a god teacher, i learned more from him then any other teacher.
awesome guy! always around video taping sports and stuff! thats awesome! way to be there for the school!! wooot!
GREATEST teacher EVER!!!! Im pretty much dieing not being in his class this year.
Best teacher my kids have had.Concerned, active, positive,helpful, and the kids had a blast. Excellent roll model.Give the man a raise!!!!!
Best teacher ever.Cares about every one of his students and is very involved with all aspects of the school, Loved his class and lame jokes
I never had him as a teacher, but he went to Europe in 99 with 80 students and he was so much fun!!
I don't think I will ever understand how he does it. His style of teaching is so perfect. He's the smartest teacher I have ever met and so dedicated and lets be honest... HLIARIOUS
Hicks, best teacher out there! He made the class really interesting!I always enjoyed his jokes of the day! Food drive was so much fun. I will never forget his class!
I didn't like science until I was in Mr. Hicks'class.He made the course very interesting and gave support to me when my parents divorced last year.More teachers
Mr. Hicks is honestly the best teacher Ive ever had. He always put a smile on my face, and taught me so much.
Mr. Hicks has taught me and all of my brother & sisters. His high,but very fair, expectations helped us to achieve success far beyond what we thought we could.
Awesome teacher!His class was one of the few that prepared me for university.He was always very helpful and answered my questions.Very knowledgeable.
I look forward to attending Mr. Hicks' class each day. He makes learning fun and encourages me to do my very best. Great sense of humor also! Thanks!
Mr. Hicks is by far the best teacher I've ever had, and is the sole reason I passed bio30
Not only do I learn in his class, but I retain that information. he's a great teacher,but sometimes when i ask questions he makes me feel stupid or unattentive.
I'm sorry but Mr.Hicks is one of the worst teachers I have ever had. He expects too much from students.
Outstanding teacher! It's great to be in his class again this year.
I have a learning disability. Mr. Hicks was very patient and helpful and also challenged me to do my best. I was successful in science for the first time.
Mr. Hicks has a true gift for teaching. I am so thankful that I was in his class for the past two years. He is the best teacher I have had in twelve years.
A great motivator, leader, mentor and outstanding teacher! He is THE best teacher I have ever had. Thank you for all you do for students and the school!
I think that Mr. Hicks is okay. Though he could let up on the one a day quizes. Most people, actually alot of people do not like the one a day quizes. no more
One of the best teacher's I have ever had! His passion for Biology and life is contagious!! He also has the "best" jokes! hahahah
Mr.Hicks has a real heart for his students. He cares for them beyond the classroom, and can remember people for years. Creates a fun learning environment.
He is one of the best teachers I have ever had! Mr. Hicks rocks (and he has an awesome sense of humour!). He knows how to connect with his students.
Wicked teacher! I've since graduated and I'm majoring in science. I still use the notes he gave us for Bio. Amazing guy and defintly passionate about bio!!
