Ignited a love for mathematics in me. He steered a lot of us in our careers with our grasp of maths. A gentleman that left no man behind regardless of ability or background. The respect shown to him by the students and staff and indeed parents reflects how good the man was. Legend.
Great Teacher! He was brilliant at everything he did, had a great rapport with students and fellow staff members. Well respected and made sure everyone could do Maths!!!
Quite simply the finest teacher I ever encountered. Commanded the respect of every pupil without the need to raise his voice once. Dedicated his life to teaching us. For that we should be grateful.
had him for jc and got an a1. then he retired and i ended up geting a d2 in pass maths in the lc.a decent dedicated and honest man.
By some distance the best teacher i ever had at all my education levels.Quite honestly would not be where i am in career terms without him.Cannot speak highly enough of the man
An absolute genius of a teacher and a gent. Have fond memories of his classes. I still tell people I had maths saturday mornings and they think I'm mad. He deserves a nobel prize
When you talk about great teachers he is what you measure them of of.
this guy had such a presence it was amazing, never had him as a teacher, should still be gaffer. a wonderful human being who would stop and talk in town no matter how long you were gone, true legend
Best teacher I ever had. I wish he'd taught me the whole way throug school
I did my leaving in the Late eighties and his Sat morning maths tuition still sticks in my mind.A superb teacher,a thorough professional and great person.
Shadrac as we knew him is one of the best teachers I have ever come across. Loves teaching for the sake of teaching. Should get an an award at the next class reunion evening....
The best teacher I ever had. I loved the subject anyway, but he would make anyone like the class. He made you feel you were disappointing him if you didn't do your best. Super man all round
The best teacher in the world by miles and miles. The man is gifted for teaching and i think everyone he teaches owes him a lot myself included. Put simply he is a legend
Fabulous! The most dedicated, caring, helpful, professional and efficient..... he is THE teacher and CHRISTIAN brother. Bless this man!
This Man is responsible for where I am today, I am currently doing research that was only possible with this person's support (not only in Mathematics),
The man had such a presence and aura about him. A legend of a teacher and a pure gentleman. His passion for a subject like maths was infectous, one in a million
An absolute legend. He made me care about doing well, and never gave up on me. I'm in University thanks to him. An embodiment of all thats good in the catholic church.
Br. Hickey was a genius - was the best teacher I've ever had. I still can not understand how he was able to command such respect in a class full of messers.
what can anyone say but great teacher, best i ever had.
class act. best teacher ever. never wanted to diappoint him...which i eventually did. hang my head in shame whenever i see him in town.
Incredible man, never ever raised his temperament but commanded more respect than anyone, excellent communicator, person and teacher
He is a great teacher. He is inspirational. Hr is the teacher you'll always remember. He is genuine. He is superb. All other teachers don't really compare.
Didn't always get on with him but no doubt that he is the best teacher I've had and that's out of 14 years of school, 8 of college and about 70 teachers.
The best teacher I've ever had. He'd go out of his way to help you. If only all teachers were like him...
People like him rescue the reputation of the religious orders- great teacher, good person, you actually wanted to do well for him-Cleary wasn't great though
did my leaving in 1988, still have most valuable lesson he thought me. never give up no matter how difficult the problem
ODE TO A CLASSIC TEACHER:WITH WILD RHETORIC HE POLISHED OUR MINDS,WITH GENTLE FACT HE LEFT NONE BEHIND,GOD BLESS THIS GREAT MAN OF GOODNESS.Most gentle man since Jesus
Made my least fav subject entertaining and helped me to an honour which I never thought I would get.Such a funny character as well!Many fond memories of him
all that can be said is legend! a passion for maths and willing to do all he can to help his students
Brilliant teacher. Won't find a better teacher anywhere
Best teacher to ever grace the school, his likes will not be seen again, yes and how can I forget the saturday mornings in the leaving!
Da best teacher ever it will b very hard 2 replace him wen he retires
gifted teacher, second to none a credit to his profession
Just to say I never had the opportunity to be thought by this man and that is something I regret. Probably would of kept me in honours maths!
Very condescending in the classroom. Expects a class full of geniuses.
very hard working and deadicated.has a passion for maths.will help any student any way he can.spends a lot of free time helping students
Absolute gentleman. Doubt any of the others would take their class in for 2 hours on a saturday morning for nothing in return
Its a long time since he taught me, but I presume he has the same passion for maths and teaching still - a credit to his profession.
Best teacher i ever had, if you can't pass with him teaching you give up
Excellent teacher, one of the few who seems to actually care. The sight of him sprinting round the prefabs to a lesson will stay with me forever.
Excellent teacher...the best in the school by a long way.Very enthusiastic and has a great knowledge of the subject material taught by him
