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.

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...

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
