This thank you note to Mr. Nimick was published in the May 11, 2017 “Palos Verdes News” .  We thought it was so awesome that we reproduced in part it for all Marauders to read:

The team thanks their advisor and mentor, Mr. Campbell Nimick for three years of exceptional leadership.  Unbeknownst  to him, the team submitted this letter to the VEX Worlds Awards committee for his consideration as Teacher of the Year:

Imagine waking up every morning and having to take a 30  minute commute to work.  Next you arrive at 7:30 and have to teach six different classes to sixth graders who cannot sit still for more than 20 minutes.  Next you have to educate seventh graders who can’t seem to follow directions on the page and eighth graders who constantly ask questions where the answer to them is constantly changing due to new advances in technology.  After that long day of work you have to mentor 28 kids on four separate teams and guide them on the correct path to create complex machines.

Mr. Nimick does not have to imagine this as this is his everyday life…He has given up even more Saturdays to take us to competitions, and even if we don’t do well in them he always makes sure that we learn valuable lessons from them so that we can learn from our mistakes and be even more prepared for our next competition.  He makes sure that everything we do is logical and thought through.  He encourages us to use the design process as much as possible, and to document our work about our redesign, our progress and the aftermath of a competition.  Mr. Nimick has given countless hours towards the VEX robotics program…because he is dedicated to the success and the innovation of the next generation –
