Nic was my teacher in grade 7 back in his St. Raphael days, and is the primary reason I became a teacher myself. Having taught grades 6, 7, and 8 for the last 20 years my only hope is that I have had the same influence on my students as Mr. B. had on me (even if it is a fraction of that, I will have accomplished a lot). BTW, I still have the book he gave me way back then displayed in my classroom and the inscription "Beware of hairy meatloaf" still to this day is the source of much inquiry.
What can I say, Nicola's a great man. It's a sad sad day, now that he's retiring. We'll all miss him and we all hope he has an amazing (after)life
was there for us through the hardest months!! thanks sir!!
Awesome teacher. Doesn't actually follow the generic "teaching" methods, but tries to relate to the kids and give them a broader perspective on things.
This is a man who represents teaching at its roots. If only all teachers could do what this man does.
Good teacher in some ways. Much too easy in others. Trys too hard with students though, to 'meet them on their level'.
Never had a teacher so kind and philisophical before Mr. B. Just getting used to teaching English, but I think he does a great job.
Mr. Battegelli, your the best!!! This teacher has a fun personality that actually makes you want to work for him. He's also very friendly. My best teacher
He is the best teacher i had my whole time at st.benz. Helped me figure out what i should do for my career...

One of the best teachers you will ever meet on this planet.
He is a passionate man, and passion is what allows teachers to teach. =)
