My experience with the Teacher Tom Mirus was from August to December of the 2014 School year here at WVHS in IL. Having taken prior classes in Woods and done outside work, I can truly say how flawed his methods and overall knowledge in the curriculum are almost non existent. Almost taking off a students hand with a scroll saw and endangering the entire class, I feel he should not be employed anywhere and should just retire due to his age and dwindling awareness of what occurs around him.
mister mirus is my best friend
did you know he has a twitter?
showed me how to make the /perfect/ dragster
also takes off 5 points just cause he hates you, but we all make mistakes, right?
Here's da ting, Mirus is totally self involved. Here's da ting, he doesn't like kids and doesn't care that he can't teach them. Da ting is, in high school I read a definition of Narcissistic Personality Disorder and my 6th grade shop teacher (Mirus) popped into my mind. Here's da ting, something is seriously wrong with him because he is soo bad and he couldn't care less. Da ting is, if you tell him he is still good-looking or well dressed, he will give u an A. Here's da ting, he can't teach
His class is boring. He likes to take off 5 points from people's grade for no apparent reason. For example my classmate was talking about a video we watched a few days ago and Mr.Mirus took off 5 points from him. Like I said his class a=is boring and he does unnecessary things. He's now a teacher at Metea Valley High School
Mr Mirus quite said to me loud and proud to the class " I was hoping you weren't going to be as bad as your brother" of course i did nothing wrong at all that day... He blames me for things i didn't do. and mostly i feel like he verbally abuses me...
he is very confusing. he is the worst teacher ever i cant believe he is a teacher for innocent kids
My 2 kids had Mr. Mirus. This man is verbally abusive! He has done nothing but make my kids fearful of asking a question in class. He asked my son if he was a special needs kid - infront of the class and when my son said "no", Mr Mirus laughed. We have documented over 20 different instances of verbal abuse and disrespectful behavior by this man. We brought each and every instance up to the principal and they said, "he's not a bad guy" - Crone seems to be a place that protects bad teachers. shame
i use to hide sand paper under a cabinet because he never gave us any.
He was harsher on the boys than he was on the girls but throughout the year i hear he was always trying to look up gurls' shirts and he had playboy magazines in his office! But I got a 92 in his clas
Mr. Mirus is a stalker and a disgusting **** ewww stay away from him far away.....
wel..i dont believe any of the rumors thts going around unless i hear them from his moth. but i do kno he was a mean teacher and he laughed in my face when my racecar fell apart. dont know y he would.
he yells alot and most of the time is really mean and doesnt really help hen u have a questions
Is all the rumors people said about him true? Well 1. I couldn't understand him, 2. when I asked a question he was NOO help at all!
mr.mirus is the worst teacher ever!! i hate him so much! i am not going to take woodshop next year. ireally liked it though. and i'm a girl! i hope they switch teachers!
I think he is ok but when you need help he will not help u the way you want him to and if you do one bad thing in his class u are not on his good list but he is a good teacher
my car broke 2 times and he had to fix it! I don't think he plays favorites i think everyone just gives him a bad wrap
well its just the beginning of the quarter but hes not as bad as ppl say he is, i guess its because i took my friend's advice and got on his good side before its too late, he does play favorites tho.
if you do what u are supposed to then he can be nice. if not then you will hate him. His class was never that hard though. although many failed because they did not want to try
Mr. Mirus was a nice teacher to me and my friend. We finished our projects early so he always liked to talk to us. I admit, he did play favorites. I liked him although I know people don't.
he is not mean, just really boring and tedious, he is just misunderstood. there could be a more exciting shop teacher, really there could. -_-;
mirus...he is a pretty cool teacher. you may think that he is mean at first, but when you see him in the hall or get to know him more, you'll probably change your mind about him!
i dont think i really like Mr. Mirus... he isnt that nice and not really helpful when we do our sketches.
mr. Mirus dosen't make sense and he doent help at all. i dont understand how to do half the stuff and i know im not the only one he is my least favorite teacher i dislike his approach
I like him. He gave me 100% on everything except my car, but I still had the top grade in my class.
he can be really mean when ure absent he doesnt help u wit ure assignment and he never smiles he was only nice on the last day of the quarter
He repeats himself too many times and if you ask him a question it will take him the whole period to answer and then he will say the thing is guys the thing is
he thinks u should be as smart as a rocket scientist for six graders in shop he stinks at teaching and he doesnt no what hes talking about
Shop Club is the best we got to make kool mini pool tables.
Well the thing is guys the thing is that mr. mirus says the thing is like 40 times but other wise a very cool teacher
mr M is awsome hes the best shop teacher hes awsome I thought shop would be hard but he made it pretty easy P. 6 student
I'm a girl so he was really nice to me, and i got an A in his class! and in 6th grade he basically did my entire paper because i raised my hand so much.
He should really learn that the word for height is height and not heighth! When people didn;t get somthin, he would yell. I didn't have to try hard cuz im in PA
He is so nice and helpful he was a very good teacher
Mr Mirus rules! I don't know what all of you are thinking...I know! You all misbehave in class and you don't like getting in trouble!
He's so boring and thinks that we're the dumbest kids in the universe! "Does anyone know what a 1/2 inch is???" I mean, COME ON!!!!!!!!!
I made some cool stuff, but it turned out sorta lame.
he's so hard, never gets anything kids say, has boring stories, makes me fall asleep in his class, has nothing important to say! He's annoying!
This teacher is very boring and should stop playing the blame game with the michines. the only reason i passed was because i sucked up to him.
he is not so bad if you know what your doing near saws. but 6th grade shop is boring. 7th and 8th is much better.
he is not very clear on instructions and he yells at me for something i didn't do
I enjoyed the Shop class, but i didn't enjoy the teacher. He yelled at us a lot blaming it on the air ducks...Yeah Right!
I thought this was a great class. I learned a lot about power tools. Informative teacher with a high level of expertise.
